The router has limited ability to do collect this.

You can put in

IP route-cache flow on a interface and then show ip cache flow. This will only show open flows not historic data.

You can try configuring the top-talkers with the global command ip flow-top-talkers and it will keep track of flows over a short time.

You can also use ip accounting on the interface which collects more long term data but you will have to process the results results with a external program like excel to get useful data. IP accounting can a performance impact on your router so watch the loads when you first turn it on.

Best solution is sniffer or ethereal that are free utilities.

check the top talkers.
