Hi!

I have a small internet cafe that has 40 PCs and few (15) home users that I provide Internet access to.

Lately, I have this huge latency on my network, and users are complaining. The problem may be me, users or the ISP. Now experts, I want to monitor this network, I need to monitor the bandwidth I'm getting from ISP, how that bandwidth is used, and programmes users are running.

If I can be advised on which softwares to buy and how to use them, I would be generous enough to share my points to you!!!!

Thanx

What types of hosts do you have at your disposal?

unix / linux host you can use a combination of MRTG and NTOP.

Depending on what hardware you have and if it is SNMP compliant.  No matter what you can use NTOP with a hub monitoring data or a managed switch and a monitor port.

Thanks
Scott
