How to find heavy bandwidth user

kim2vp asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Our internet is really slow so I look at the sonicwall firewall and notice that an IP address is using 17 GBytes of data.  That's about 10% more than the the next highest user (the mail server).

I look at the DHCP server and there is no Netbios name for this account.  Before I disconnect them, is there anyway to find out who this user is?
