Hello all. Im noticing that there is quite a bit of chatter/traffic on the local area LAN at my work. I cant seem to pinpoint where its coming from. ALL ports on ALL my switches are constantly blinking. What is the best course of action to see where all this is being generated from?

Thanks!

Scott

Can you please elaborate more, are all the ports on the switches connected to machines that are in use, and even if they arent they can still be telling the network that its there and dont disconnect me.

He would have to install that on every computer and sit at each for hours monitoring his network from each computer.
