SimTel/msdos/pktdrvr/     PKT-STAT v1.0: Statistical network monitoring

PKT-STAT 1.0 is a DOS program.  It is a tool to monitor the traffic
between stations on Ethernet or FDDI LANs.

 - PKT-STAT gives an overview of the traffic on the network.
 - If allows download of the collected data.
 - It helps to identify "unknown stations" on the network.
 - Bigger LANs can be completly monitored and recorded by PKT-STATs
   big brother "NET-Control", which can be found in SimTel's /msdos/lan
   directroy (


 - IBM compatible (286 or higher) system with at least 500 kb free
   memory and harddisk with at least 0.5 MB free space.
 - LAN Board with packet driver interface (must be switchable into

1. Monitoring network stats -- bandwidth, traffic stats, etc.


Not specifically Cisco-related, but I'm not aware of a newsgroup for
general networking stuff.

I'm looking for an application that I can run on a SPAN port of our
backbone switch to collect traffic information such as host bandwidth
usage, protocol distribution, etc.  I've seen a lot of talk here about
MTRG, but my understanding is that this can only show total traffic
passing through the router or switch as opposed to being able to show
traffic to/from specific hosts.  

I tried ntop today, and while it's pretty nice, it seems somewhat
buggy so I'm hoping there are better products out there.

What do you net admins out there use for network traffic monitoring?
