I am trying to figure out how much bandwidth I am using when connecting multiple classrooms.  I have one case of 3 classrooms all connected to 3 and 4 other sites all coming down my DS3, I note video distortion and audio lag.  other than using Cacti is  there a way for me to have a ball park figure on bandwidth needed.  I am using qos but not sure if set for best performance.
