I forget a detail.

I need to monitor 9 servers running WINDOWS 2000 SERVER and 6 servers running WINDOWS 2003 STANDARD.

This servers are Critical Mission servers!

Is your goal to monitor the amount of Internet or WAN bandwidth those servers are using?    In other words, are you trying to track down a LAN or a WAN bottleneck?  If it's on the LAN, try the tools Sunray suggested.  On the WAN or Internet connection, Allot's NetReality Wisewan and NetEnforcer to a great job of reporting on bandwidth utilization and even can prioritize based on policies.

We sell and use NetReality devices - great reporting tools, plus they allow you to prioritize.  NetEnforcer, from what I've seen, is just as good at prioritizing, but not as good at reporting.  They used to be separate companies, they merged a year or so ago.

If you'd like to arrange a demo, we're a reseller, pop me a note and we'll arrange it.
