Bandwidth Monitoring - See who is using the most bandwidth in the company

Sup all. I use a Cisco ASA 5505  firewall. Its seems the network has been real sluggish lately. We have a laid back company and I know people will stream radio and what not. Im looking for a bandwidth monitor so I can see what people are using the most bandwidth,.

Anything free?

Well, its not free but it can be fully tested (trial) for a few days.  It gives some great detail on whats going on with your network.  I simply plugged into a switch and mirrored the uplink port to a port that network probe is attached to.

CACTI - it's free and will run on a low end system (though depending on how many hosts you want to monitor you may need more storage space)

CACTI will use SNMP to monitor, log, and graph things like network usage on windows, cisco, and many other types of hosts.
