Network Monitor Tool for bandwith
Posted on 2009-04-05
I wonder if you could assist me in finding a good and preferably free software that allows me to do some monitoring. I have a network with 20 stations running Windows 2003 SBS. Mostly they are used by interns doing some contract work. The issue is that i am sure that some do extensive downloading during the time they should work and use my complete bandwidth at these times.
Is there a software that could be on the server that lets me see which one of the stations uses the bandwidth and how much. I would like to record and maybe limit the bandwidth of these workstations to ensure I that one station is not able to use all the bandwidth.
I use Windows 2003 SBS, Internet is connected to the switch Upstream and the server is the DHCP.
Any ideas what would be my best option?
