Hi,

The best way would be to enable netflow on your router and install a netflow collector.

Once netflow is enabled you can try using a few of the commands below to see traffic flows, however you'll see things much clearer with a proper netflow collector (there are a few free ones out there)

show ip cache flow

show ip cache verbose flow

Regards

Re: How to Find Busy talker on the Network ?

To add to James' response, if you don't have a collector, you can enable top-talkers on the router too.

ip flow-top-talkers

router(config-flow-top-talkers)# sort-by bytes

router(config-flow-top-talkers)# top 10

The above will configure the top 10 (and you can set lower or higher if you want).

To view:

router# sh ip flow top-talkers

HTH,

John

Usage Guidelines

Enabling NetFlow

You must enable NetFlow on at least one interface in the router; and configure NetFlow top talkers before you can use the show ip flow top-talkers command to display the traffic statistics for the unaggregated top flows in the network. NetFlow top talkers also requires that you configure the sort-by and top commands. Optionally, the match command can be configured to specify additional matching criteria.
