I use or have used these:
Nagios
Cacti
NMIS
JFFNMS

Monitoring bandwidth is easy. Depending on what you mean by "usage", a proxy server might be what you need.

what kind of bandwidth monitoring

by imran In reply to Monitoring network

what kind of bandwidth monitoring do you need? are you a home user, a lan administrator or a network professional ? If you want to monitoring bandwidth of your home systems, you can check if your gateway devices supports SNMP, or if you are using some windows based internet sharing , bandwidth monitor like DU meter or AnalogX can help you.
