Didn't you just answer your own question? (Visualware MCS).

Of course if all you're interested in is throughput and latency, there's 
ping, traceroute, mtr, iperf, etc. - all of which let customers check 
performance without needing anything special at the datacenter, other 
than a host to ping against.
