View network traffice
Posted on 2014-04-09
I have several SMB networks with basic layout of
ISP (Modem) --- SonicWALL -- Switch -- Clients
Some of the sites I do not have access to the SonicWALL's, is there a hardware device that I can plug into the switch to see which computer is using the most bandwidth? I have seen a few network taps, but I do not know enough about them to find what I am look for.
I would like to be able to plug a device into the switch and have it port to my computer or create a graphic pie chart that tells me the host names, IP's of the computers that are running traffic across the line.
Or if there is a some software I can install on my laptop and then I plug into the switch that would work as well.
