Measuring Citrix bandwidth usage

We are currently running Citrix servers in a Windows 2003 PS4.0 farm. All servers and clients are in one site.

Our clients access the applications via PNA.

We will shortly be integrating a new site into our network, and want to ensure the bandwidth of the line would be enough to handle Citrix traffic.

i) Is anyone aware of how I can do this either via Citrix itself or the Windows 2003 servers? I'm not a network person so not sure how I can do this on the routers/switches.

ii) When the new site comes on, is there anyway to limit the bandwidth available to ICA sessions?

iii) Let's say I run some sort of trace and see that one sessions takes up x kps of bandwidth. Does this mean that 100 sessions would take up 100x, or does Citrix not work like this?

Any help appreciated.
