there are a lot of options out there, and Net Admins have their favorites, I personally like SolarWinds (expensive) but this might be what you are looking for, and it's free for the first 10 sensors.

The statistics section in wireshark can give you that information if you have a switch that would allow port mirroring of the Internet router's port.
