how to monitor bandwith usage of a pervasive database

I have a pervasive 9 database which is being accessed by all our users. I would like to calculate  how much bandwidth is being used by the application . Is there any tool you can suggest i run on the server to see how much bandwidth is being utilized on port 3351 or by the service ?

You can use Wireshark and add a capture or display filter for port 335 (and 1583 if you use PSQL's ODBC).  

To measure the bandwidth, go to the Statistics -> IO Graphs and enter a display filter for your application and it will graph it.  You can change it to bits or bytes
per tick instead of packets per tick.

Foir bandwith analysis, its hard to beat Wireshark. Its free and does a great job.

Start a normal capture and collect packets whuile the system is running. A minute or so should be just fine.

Then, bring up the IO Graph dialog. Add a filter on one line for "tcp.port == 1583" to see the SQL bandwidth. Add another filter for "tcp.port == 3351" to see the Btrieve packets. Adjust the graph settings to show bandwidth (or bytes) as needed.
