I you run wireshark on the server or on a port mirror of the server or router port then you can go into statistics and look at how much bandwidth is being used by each conversation.

If this is a tcp based application, tcp will use up all available bandwidth. You will need to utilize QoS  to shape the path or design the application to have an option to throttle the data.

Wireshark is a free packet analyzer. While it can be difficult to learn all the ins and outs of it for your stated use it is fairly simple.

Once it is installed and running you just select the network adapter you want to capture on and start it up.

Either while it is running or after stopping it you can click on statistics and then conversations and then pick IP or TCP or UDP to get to the conversations you are looking for. In your case probably TCP to and from the server with some remote device.

You can sort by the column headers to make it easier to see what you are looking for.
Once you find the conversation of interest if you slide over to the right it shows the bps used in and out for that conversation.

If you wanted to see all of the traffic for one device you could filter on it and save that filtered capture and then look at the conversation statistics for it or just use the endpoints screen in statistics. However, with looking at endpoints it just gives you the number of packets and not bps. You would have to do the math yourself to calculate that.
