We have 8 MB serial link for internet access given by ISP. We need to check if we are getting really 8 MB from service provider. And secondly what type of traffic is passing through that serial link. (like http,ftp, or any other wellknow ports used by applications ) . Are there any commands to see these details.

Any link on ?

Thanks in advance

we have given access only to particular ip addrsss only. But somehow all bandwidth is getting choked . That is why we need to check which ports are utilizing the bandwidth.
