LAN traffic monitoring tool??


Hello Everybody,
I want a tool that gives me information of how much bandwidth is being consumed by a particular host [based on IP address or MAC address] in my LAN.. I have googled a lot but did not find one... Any inputs regarding the matter is a welcome...
And, does MRTG give me information of the bandwidth being consumed by different ipaddresses at any movement....??
Regards
KartheeK

ntop may well help you out, it will track all movements through a point. with flow graphing and such. this is pretty lightweight but comprehensive bit of kit, that's management free.

If you're after more large scale analysis, i use OpenNMS to trak bandwidth usage of routers, via SNMP. but there's no real way to know the input and output of data from a given machine, without additional per client processes running to record that.
