Hi Experts
I have a remote site connected to the main office using a leased line (Cisco router + switch + 20 computers)
I have some bandwidth performance issues on the leased line, is there any software able to report all remote site users or computers bandwidth usage ?
Thanks

For bandwidth usage/graphing for each interface use MRTG:

For more complex usage on a user/IP/MAC basis, use OSSIM:
http://www.ossim.net/

Both open source.

Unless the switch is managed, per-interface monitoring won't cut it.

I read that ossim includes ntop - ntop is really all you need (it does netflow analysis just like scrutinizer).
