Line load monitoring

I am looking if there is any free tool or other solution, in order to monitoring the trafic at two points that is connected with lease line.
Because I need to have an image for the load of the line.

Best Regards

You mean monitoring through SNMP on network ports? MRTG is a great tool, and is free: http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/

You could get a rough idea with Wireshark and a mirror of the LAN side port of the device.
To do it easiest just filter on the remote side's network (like ip.addr == 192.168.1.0/24 ) then look at the statistics/summary and it will give you the amount being used.

It would be best of course to get the stats directly from the device's WAN interfaces but if that means installing and learning a new tool it may not be the easiset way to get the numbers you are looking for.

The tool uses SNMP, so you would simply have to have SNMP set up  on both sides. That effort could be large or small depending on whether both sides are cisco routers or what exactly they are and if you have control of them. If they are cisco routers that you control, then it's a fairly simple set of IOS commands to setup SNMP to allow MRTG to grab the stats.  Yes, MRTG requires some setup, and it typically runs on linux. There is a Windows equivalent, PRTG, as well.
