I have a web server running Windows Server 2008 with IIS7. I would like some advice on a free or very low cost tool that can give me a report on the bandwidth usage of all the sites hosted in IIS7.

Previously I used AWstats log analyser tool. However you have to run each report separately for each site which is time consuming. I am looking for some kind of overall report for all the websites.

I have the Performance Monitor tool which comes with Windows Server but I don't know if it can set up the report I need.

If you want to break it down by website or even by service, then this won't work for you, but if you are just concerned about OVERALL bandwidth used by the machine, I suggest using MRTG to monitor usage and add a scheduled task that samples every 5 minutes (SNMP needs to be running on the server).  This will then provide a graph that displays the last 24 hours in 5 minute intervals, last week in 30 minute intervals, last month in 2 hour intervals, and last year in daily intervals, if memory serves.  And it's free - http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/

Thanks Lee but I really do need it broken down by website as I need to check which website uses the most bandwidth.
