Well here it all depends on what it is you are measuring

At the Server. If it is only Uploads that is only part of the total Internet Usage you need to also look at what has come in. Just the same if you are only looking at what is coming in you need to consider what is going out or being Uploaded.

The easiest way to do this is look on your ISP's Web Site for your Daily Usage.

You can use Wireshark to monitor all Traffic on the Network as well.

ISA reported the problem

by alashhar In reply to Well here it all depends ...

you were right, the problem was in uploading. the office manager had installed Bittorrent and emaule which case the big traffic in uploading.

ISA reported the web and non web traffic, but i was concentrate to web traffic only.

i recommended to any Sys admin, don't allow any one in your company even managers administration privilege on his PC or the network.

many thanks

Good luck implementing the No Admin Privileges with the Managers though.
