I have not used a managed network switch before.
Using one, can I log traffic (quantity of packets) between nodes in a LAN?
Say for example, traffic between workstations and a router.
All I am interested in is traffic volume. Not sniff contents, segment or block packets.
I am aware that there are software to do this. But I am after a simple, maintenance free solution.
If indeed this is feasible, how would this feature/function of a switch be referred to.
Just so that if I were to get one, to ensure that it will do the job.
