Need a way to monitor and analyze how network bandwidth is used on small AD network behind PIX and perimeter router.  Small budget, however solution would ideally disclose how much bandwidth is being consumed, which subnets the traffic is originating from (or destined to), and the applications (protocols) that are causing the traffic?
