What is the best way to monitor a PCs bandwidth usage?   It would be great if someone new of a simple yet effective app that logged PC bandwidth (general data IO) usage.  This would take place in a Windows domain of considerable size.

If you want to monitor single PC then you could use Bitmeter or Netpersec.

If you want to monitor all of your domain pc then I'd suggest you to install Cacti(Open Source monitoring tool) into a machine then Enable all of your computers SNMP.You could web-based monitor all of your domain computers usage from anywhere .

There are other good and reliable tools also like PRTG(Free up to 10 sensors),Solarwinds,Whatsup Gold but those are not free.
