Tools for Logging Network Usage Statistics

I'm running a small network. A file transfer between two of the hosts was running very slow and it got me thinking -- I don't really have a clue how to check the current bandwidth consumption.

Are there tools around to tell me which users on which machines are using how much bandwidth at what times?
