We are looking for to produce some analysis of our internal lan traffic to understand how much bandwidth would be necessary for our future MPLS line to our Co-location. We have Cisco Switches and Hyper-V in our network. Any suggestions on any tools or strategy would be helpful.

Solarwinds has free tool called "realtime bandwidth monitor.

You can install it and monitor outbound port on the switch and it will show how much traffic is used.

It only requires SNMP RO credential.
