monitor switch and port banwidth usage

I have a catalyst 4506 switch with CATOS version 8.4(4)GLX.

Does software exist that I can use to monitor the bandwidth of the switch and each port?

I basically want to zero in on the machines that are producing high volumes of traffic.

Re: monitor switch and port banwidth usage

HI, [Pls Rate if HELPS]

You can monitor the traffic pattern on each port by enabling the SPAN sessions.

You need to have some Packet Capture Tool (Ethereal) to verify the traffic.

>> Refer attachment for SPAN Configuration

Nevertless,

>> You can enable "ip accounting" on Switch port but make sure it may cause increase of CPU load sometimes.

In addition,

>> You can monitor the Traffic Load of the Swtich (may be Switch port ==> i am not sure) in a Graphical manner (5 mins avg, 30 mins avg, 1 day avg, etc.,) with MRTG Tool.

Refer: http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/

PLS RATE if HELPS

Best Regards,

Guru Prasad R
