Does anyone know if a piece of software that can give us a graphical view of the network by scanning it. I want to be able to see which machine is causing potential bottlenecks or a network card causing network disruption or a faulty switch.

Would be good to be able to print a report showing the network as it is.

There are a few different tools available depending on what you are after.

hope this helps!
