I have a .net web application. I want to know how much bandwidth certain functions require. Is there an easy tool to measure bandwidth?

Well yes and no...

Yes there is a utility you can use to measure traffic usage, its a bit difficult to use when you first start using it, but after a very short learning curve its wonderful. Best of all its free...

This will give you all the stats you need to measure network traffic when you activate portions of your software, make sure to test in a controled enviroment (Closed network) to get accurate results.
