How to analyze Network utilization

By BriannaRivas ·
I want to analyze how heavy trafic is on my network consisting of 200 client PC's. There are times when the network is very slow, and I want to know if there are any freewares available or if windows 2000 server has this feature that can help me put this on a graph. I also know that if users listen to the radio over the internet this can slow down the network. I run Win2K as a File & print server & Exchange on it. I also have Win2k Resource Kit, but I have not been able to learn how to use it. Please help.

If you have routers or switches that answer to SNMP you can use mrtg to track your network utilization:

If you do not have a firewall, I would suggest getting one. This way you can see where [ better yet ] what segment on your LAN is creating the problem. You will also be able to see who's going where. You should also ping across your link to your providers access router and see what the response times are. This will help you determine if the latency is truely on the link between you and your provider or beyond that point. If you have any other questions, feel free to send me an email.
