I currently have a Cisco network infrastructure in my datacenter.  I use Solarwinds to monitor WAN bandwidth on my edge router.  My questions is how do I limit bandwidth for a specific server in the datacenter?  I feel like I need some sort of network accounting system  where I can monitor the usage of individual servers, as well as police there bandwidth.  I'm curious what other people are doing to achieve this.  Thanks.

Well you can limit the interface to a specific bandwidth or traffic shape.  Now you can proactively monitor the switch interface with solarwinds or another product and alert an report on the traffic as well, but if you are virtualized you will need another solution.
