Do a traceroute or mtr to the destination without VPN and then with VPN.

I don't think it is useful to measure the hops. Because the RPi is the VPN Server. Means this test would need to be done from client side and it will be always same, with and without VPN.

I didn't notice that the OpenVPN is acting as server. :roll:
Anyway, try to transfer something with just a simple port forward directly on the router and compare the speed with the scenario where you download over VPN.
In both cases keep an eye on the cpu utilization.
