WIndows XP has its own speed monitor ?

Was googling aboout for a "netmeter" prog and came across this site....
http://www.broadbandreports.com/faq/12308
It seems to be some kind of forum site, and about halfway down the page is this little gem

The third thing you need to do, is get a program that will tell you what your current transfer speeds are. You have lots of different options. One of the most commonly used programs is NetMeter. Windows XP even has its own built in speed monitor, but I prefer using a third-party program.


Unfortunately, it doesn`t go into any more detail.....
Does anyone know how to access this "hidden gem"  ?  and if it is any good ?

Note to the Mods..... this could also be used to give out as a source of information, as the page is quite full of useful things to check out if having speed problems.....

It is probably the XP Performance Monitor which can be accessed by start > run > perfmon.msc

Hey, I had forgotten all about perfmon. Not used it for years. Thanks Oldjim!
The other possibility is the networking tab of Task Manager (start-run-taskmgr)
