Is there a way to keep individual users at a limited bandwidth for certain activities?
Example:
If a user does a microsoft update, I can see in Netflow that they spkie the "Entire T1" usage.
We go from 100kbps for the entire company use to over the 1.5 mbps limit just with one user doing updates or watching a youtube stream, etc...

I need to keep those users/protocols to use a "Limited" bandwidth so the Remote Desktop users and other business applications running smoothly with an "Available" bandwidth.

thanks,
Shindig

Take a look at applying QoS (Quality of Service).  Its a way of controlling traffic on your network.  Instead of throttling bandwidth for users you can do it by traffic type eg FTP, HTTP, VoIP etc.
