looking for a tool...


     I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a tool capable of sniffing (or reading pcap files), and reporting on lan station thruput in terms of bits per second. Ideally I'd like to be able to generate a sorted report of the top users and top thruputs observed and so forth. The traffic is pppoe and I need to monitor it at a specific switchport where I can arrange span.

Thank you.

Have you considered wireshark or Ettercap? I¹m not entirely certain
they¹ll monitor the throughput, but I know they can open PCAP'sŠ


NTOP can do this is in real time.

I believe Wireshark will also do what you are looking for. You can capture and analyze or open a .pcap file and analyze. I'm my version, you would do it be going to the following menu:

Statistics --> Endpoints
