I am interested in evaluating network monitoring software.
The ideal display of the traffic would show all active computers/servers/printers on the network in a circle. Traffic between two deviceswould show as a line between the devices. The thickness of the line would imply the volume of the traffic; optionally the line would be labeled with the volume of the traffic.
I manage a windows SBS 2003 network with a maximum of 45 computers/printers active a any one time.
