Check client downloads from server

Hi

Running Windows 2008 Server and Windows XP clients.

We have an application running on a server box, every now and then the clients need to download updates from the server.

It would be useful to know how much data the client is attempting to download from the server.

Does anyone know

1. any tools I can run from the server side that will list clients and how much data they're pulling down?

2. I can also run netstat on the server to find all client IP connections, if I wanted to check if a certain client was connected, is there a command I can run that will filter the netstat output to just that client?

For #1:

At Microsoft's site you can download tcpview that I think shows you how many bytes have been transfered.

For #2:

     netstat | findstr /c:"x.x.x.x"

where "x.x.x.x" is the ip address you want to find will show current TCP connections.

Just a note, the tcpview utility only shows you the data transfer of active/open TCP connections.  No history.  Once the connection goes away, the information is gone.

If your setup using IIS, then rmrustice is correct that analyzing IIS log will give you the information.
