Bandwidth distribution report on Forefront TMG

Hi guys,
We have a ForeFront TMG box set up that provides internet to our internal LAN as well as VPN access to outside branches. We have limited bandwidth from our ISP, and browsing gets quite painfully slow at times. I would like to be able to get a report of where the bandwidth is going to, what IPs are consuming the most and how much so I can better allocate resources and see if it can be used more efficiently or if we simply need to get more BW from the ISP. I'm also suspecting some users are abusing the BW with non work related downloads.

Thanks in advance,
- Jimmy

There are several commercial products that will monitor your internet activity.  The most common abuse is streaming video.  I do not want to promote any product over another, perhaps you can do a web search and find a vendor that will provide a demonstration of their product for you.  Search for "internet use monitoring" or something similar.

GFI web monitor is one that produces very good results.

Thanks, but I was refering more along the lines of the ForeFront itself and its Logs & Reports feature.

FTMG does not care about bandwidth so there is no internal bandwidth report.
