Hey guys,

I have several tools that I use to monitor network bandwidth/throughput and things like that but I'm wondering if there are newer ones, or even older ones, that I don't know about.  Basically I'm looking for really good network monitors that could pinpoint in a moment something that was excessive on the network.  Also, free is always preferred.  

Thanks.

PRTG turned out to be the one I used as Nirsoft was more of an individual type scan like Wireshark.
