    monitoring bandwidth usage on a small LAN?

    Does anyone know of any software I can use to monitor bandwidth usage on a small LAN? I"m currently using ethereal off of Kinnopix STD.

    Maybe you can try LanSpeed or IPTraf. I also use Sniffer from network associates.

    You can also try IRIS . There is a trial version available too.

    You should take a look at this link, surely find lots of tools here.

    I always have been fond of MRTG

    I use Airopeek for wireless and Airo* for wired. *=I forgot the name of the product. I'm thinking Aironet. There are torrents available.

    MRTG is nice, but currently I prefer Cacti.

    It can be a replacement for both MRTG and Nagios.
