Network Monitoring / Security

By yoshi ·
I would like to monitor all traffic accross my network. Here is are the things I need to do.
60+ users connected to 48 port switches in central computer room.

1. Bandwidth being used (LIVE monitoring).
2. Broken down by each computer on the network.
3. Each computer further broken down by IP it is connecting to, ports used and application.

Additional things I would like to do.
1. Be able to limit each users bandwidth individually. So I can allow certain users to have more bandwidth than others.

Not an ideal solution and only really suitable for relatively short periods of analysis but you could use (t)ethereal/WireShark, connected to strategically placed roving analysis/mirror ports on your switches.

I haven't seen an all-inclusive tool that provides what you are looking for. I have had tremendous success with Solarwinds for monitoring.
