Go to dslreports.com and run the speed test.
Our organization has an internet leased line of 4Mbps.
Now how can I check whether that much bandwidth is coming or not?
Can any one help me...
bwm-ng is a good tool. I used this tool in my Fedora Core 4 router. It's a text based bandwidth monitoring tool which is easy to install and configure. Checkout from:
i read an article about that on Linux.com last week...i think it was last week. Either case, I jotted down a couple of the apps to check out later. Here they are (and all command line based btw):

I was standing in the park wondering why Frisbees got bigger as they get closer. Then it hit me.
I think all these are giving the bandwidth of individual machines on which they are running.
But I want to test the full bandwidth, our organization is getting from our ISP.
Is there any tools for that?
The individual machine test _IS_ the full bandwidth your organization is getting from you ISP. Just make sure no one else is using your connection when you run the test, that way the test computer is taking up as much of the pipeline as possible.

Alternatively you ca run the command on the router machine to which your ISP connects.
MRTG can be installed on the system
MRTG only samples device throughput, not actual bandwidth to a remote server.
MRTG gives the best details through any IP address (Here the one which faces your ISP).
Eventhough It gives throughput, for any leased line with 4Mbps it may not differ much.
This has advantage of saving the total behaviour for the whole year in simple giffed graph images, which is quite intuitive.
