OK, lets see.
The Internet access at work is getting really slow, so I want to find out the users that use the most bandwidth. Now, I appreciate any help, but consider me, like a dummy in this.
I will give some background on the layout
Internet access gets filtered at a proxy, which is out of my reach. Then there is a T1 line coming to here, and it goes to the Circuit, from there it goes to the gateway (Cisco Router 2500), and from there it goes to the switch (Cisco Catalyst). We use both DHCP and Static IP.
I had set up a line between the gateway and the switch so I can do the statistics. Now, my question is:
What software, and how should I set it up can I use for this purpose??
The information that I would like to gather is IP address and bandwidth usage for the users. I was thinking to watch the traffic to the gateway, since that would mean Internet use. But so far I haven't been able to get this data. Also I need it to be easy looking.
I noticed that during noon it gets so slow that cannot even surf to Yahoo (or TZ)
Any help with this??
Any Net admin interested in something similar, or that have done this???
