Measurement of the data transfer considered as often task when regular transfer over long distant network of large volume data is required. The data transfer over network depends on many conditions and parameters. Quite often measurements have to be repeated several times. The paper describes procedure how to implement appropriate measurements to store automatically all the parameters and messages during the data transfer. The saved history tracking permits to do detailed comparison of measurement results.
