testing network saturation / bandwidth / latency

What tool do I want to use to examine whether a network is saturated, how
much bandwidth I have, and what my latency?

We have two computers connected together via a network and when our
applications run on separate machines they slow down noticably, even
though the data we share isn't that much, so I'm wondering if there is a
network configuration issue like router problems, etc.

I need to know how to diagnose some of that stuff, so if anyone can point
me at tools, or where to read up on stuff, that would be good.
