You can use Netflow to gather information about what is passing through the that WAN link.

You could try QoS first.  If you're using a router that supports some form of fair-queue, that will often handle congestion well without further traffic identification.

Much depends on features of your device and exactly how detailed you wish to analyse the traffic.

Other possible features include, netflow caching stats, nbar stats, ip accounting, ACLs, traffic analysis with a NAM, etc.
