Protocol Analyzer

I have been tasked with finding out what type of traffic is hitting the interface of a couple of our servers.

We are looking for type of traffic and the amount of bandwidth each is using.

Can you please point me in the right direction as to how I can get this information?

I was hoping to find something that would graph it.

How detailed does the graph have to be? If you disable "Hide capture info dialog" in the Capture Options (wireshark) it will give you a bar graph showing the total number of packets transfered and of those what percentage belong to a particular packet type.

You could also export the capture as a .csv file and manipulate the data in excel, producing whatever graph you like.
