network tools

I was wondering if there was an affordable tool that will check the bandwidth usage of a local network and reveal how much each ip address is using.  On a windows network.  a tool that will run on windows computer on network.

ManageEngine has a tool. http://www.manageengine.com/products/netflow/download-free.html

I used it before with sflow on Juniper EX series of switches.

Also some proxy server like squid could help you with this and give you a lot of other possibilities

I cant think of AMY prodct that will do that in a peer to peer networks with dumb switches. Be surprised if there is anything.

OR are your just talking about Internet use? In that case ony of the well known free Prosy implementations will do. Like squid

landsurveyor  is $1995, not what I consider reasonable price
express for $495 still too expensive.

spice doesn't really work very well.

it doesn't see one of my work stations.  it now sees my mac, but didn't before.  doesn't recognize networking devices.  does note two NAS drive, but not sure what they are.  interesting stuff about installed software.  but what I'm looking for is information that tells me what the network is doing, how it is functioning.  I my case on this network there should be very little activity.  but I want to have a tool that I can take with me to various locations and determine how each segment of their network is functioning.  If one connection is overloading the network.  And how their internet is handling the load they they are placing on it.
