    Please provide more details on what you’re trying to accomplish and what you have for existing infrastructure.

    Are the users going through a proxy of some sort? What kind?

    Are they simply connecting straight out to the internet through a firewall? What brand of firewall.

    Most proxies or firewalls should have some sort of tools to identify high bandwidth users.

    If you can tap into the traffic you will be able to analyze the traffic and find the culprits also.

    @cortezbutchd, I use PRTG to monitor network uptime and lag in the connection, but it also can monitor network usage on a per user basis if your switch supports it. PRTG talks to the switch to gather NetFlow statistics to show how much bandwidth each port is using.

    Hi there!

    You can also check Zabbix for monitoring the bandwidth of each ports of your network device.
