I have a network with a very low amount of internet bandwidth available. I would like to install something to track which computers are using up all of the bandwidth and bringing work to a crawl. I would like to see what is going in/out of the network as well as what is being sent through the network.
Our current setup has all local machines wired to Cisco SR2024C's. Each of these have a cat cable to a single Cisco SR2024C that has a cat cable to the gateway (The switches are not chained to each other except through the single switch. I believe someone did this to get around losing internet to all switches if the first one went out.).
I have seen a lot about wireshark, but I never could get it to work correctly. I would like to know if it would be easiest to use a local machine on the network install a device between the network and the gateway, or something else.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
