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.

For something free, run Netflow on the router, download VMWare Server and then download the Netflow Appliance:
