    But if you are at the console doing a local viewing of the page, does it load slow then too? Or just when remote? Monitor the network traffic, if 200 people are downloading images etc, it's going to be a drain on your bandwidth if you don't have a fast enough pipe.

    A pipe is the connection, You can also get monitoring software depends on your setup.

    A pipe is a connection thats it just a connection it could be your internet connection or your network connection depends on the context in what you say it is.

    Well to increse the speed of your connection(pipe) you would contact your ISP and ask them for a new package which offers better upstream. And there are lots off things you can do to monitor traffic using SNMP comes to mind but it can be insecure if not implemeted correctly.
