Need to measure amount of bandwidth used by SQL server traffic

We are looking for a bandwidth analyzer tool to measure the amount of SQL server traffic going in and out of our main server, which is running SBS 2003 SP2.  We thought MRTG would give us what we needed, however, it only measures total traffic (in/out), not by service or port.  What software can we install on the server to measure this?

You could run Ethereal (aka Wire shark) on the machine and then analyze the output.   Its a little extreme, but you get an exact idea of the traffic that's hitting the box.

Forced accept.
