Monitoring / Tracking Network Usage - windows server 2003
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have a windows server 2003 machine acting as my router/nat/dns/wins/dhcp server. It has two interface cards in it, one for LAN, one for internet.
How can I keep track of how much data usage I have used on the internet side? E.g. how much sent, how much received, and keep running monthly totals / reports I can view?
Does windows server 2003 come with anything built in for that? Or what is the industry standard for this?
I'm trying to compile tangible evidence of my bandwidth usage, so that when Rogers dings me with overage charges I have something to fight with.
