How to view the internet download size of each system in a LAN

Hi friends,
Our LAN is connected to internet via leased line, and it is getting slow at peak times. We doubt someone might be downloading files of huge size. Instead of SSH-ing into each system and finding out the download size (ethstatus), is it possible to view from a network bandwidth monitoring software??

I tried iptraf, but it's not giving what I want.

Please help.

there are plenty of tools in backtrack live distro. I hope you will find something useful (i think you are looking for something similar to wireshark)
