Hi All,

Routers are Cisco 870,877's

Is there anything which will do the following,

In realtime break down the bandwidth,

We have a branch office and the line is slow, will suspect port 80 is effecting our VPNs, but while tools will add up total usage etc it's of no use, its the % of the total traffic that important,

I need a tool that will show the current bandwidth and "then" break this down in % terms what is making that up, so when users report slowness I can dial in and check in realtime what is happening and the bandwidth break down

I.E.
--------------------------------Bandwidth 100%-(Whatever it maybe)----------------
Web 75%
Vpn 20%
SMTP 5%
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Any ideas?

Can you put together a simple diagram of the network? Are you trying to monitor a line back to your office that carries all their internet traffic as well as internal traffic?

Hi,

I think Cisco 870 does not support Netflow which breaks down the total traffic on per IP and per protocol basis. You may however have a look at Nprobe;

Hi Akalbfell,

Yes it is, 2 offices all Terminal Servives via VPN - all the branch traffic goes out the same line, the branch office reports pausing and slow updates on the TS sessions, when we had another office that one was fine, so we are sure the issues rests at the remote site,

I know a program named "WFilter enterprise", which can monitor all computers bandwidth in real-time. It also can produce a serial of bandwidth reports and statistics, so you will know the exact bandwidth consumed by each computer/protocol.
This software is not free, but I think you can figure out your network problem in its trial period.

I also found this, basic but shows realtime usage per IP and helps track down PC concerned then use the trial above for more details

Bypass Mode
Untick "Enable active redirect on bypass mode (D)" (can upset the network if left ticked) in Config menu
