  • Tools monitoring ...

    Hello,

    Is there a tools (included in Wiindows Server 2008 or a third party) to know the trafic for all protocols. I'd like to have a trafic counter for FTP,HTTP,POP.

    You advice is welcome

    Thanks,

    You can use a network monitor tool such as MS Network Monitor 3.2 or Wireshark.
    Cheers,

      PRTG is a good tool as well.

        Do you want to monitor traffic for one server or a range of computers? I'd take the load of traffic monitoring off of the computer that you're interested in by port mirroring the computer switch port over to another computer that's running some kind of protocol analyzer. I suppose Wireshark/Network Monitor would work but Snort is also a good options if you feel up for the challenge of setting it up. Another option would be to use a hardware network TAP on the receiving end of the mirror.
