I have a Powerconnect 2848, that is managed, and I would like to view the port activity/bandwidth for certaiin ports connected to servers.
I'm using the PRTG Traffic Grapher, but cannot for the life of me figure out how to do this.

Has anyone done anything like this?  If so, what tools did you use please?

Thank you

Wireshark is about the best tool that I know of. You'll have to read on how to use it though if you are not familiar with it. I haven't had the chance to use it much yet myself, but from what I have done with it, it is incredible. Free as well.

I don't think the PowerConnect management capabilities extend to the point of being able to provide port specific activity statistics. As sjl1986 suggested, I would mirror the server facing port to a machine with wireshark monitoring the packets. I use the 2816's in a retail environment and have used wireshark in the past.
