Hi,

You can setup a Syslog server for both your Cisco and Juniper gear. The most basic way of monitoring the application level traffic is by using Protocol Decoder like Wireshark;

What are the applications that you want to monitor? Are they web-based applications using some specific TCP ports? The filter section is what you will use to monitor the application specific information.

All Application have specific ports. I know to monitor packets using wireshack. But the same can be used to minitor the Bandwidth usage,
ie. 200 Kbps = HTTP
350 Kbps = FTP.

This type of result I need. Can wireshack can be used for the specific purpose?

Ok.. I agree.  Do u know the hardware aplliance that can be used for this purpose.
If I use Paketeer, I can monitor packets through a particular WAN link. Did u use NIKSUN?

Never used any hardware for it ever. Though products like Paketeer are really very rich. You may also have a look at F5 products.
