    Bandwith alerts

    Hi - anyone have suggestions for software to send alerts when traffic goes above expected?

    - total transfer, plus over Xmbps for x seconds would be great... Per site and per server would be ideal.

    The tools I've found so far will monitor CPU load etc, but not data transfer..

    Thanks in advance

    put a snort box in your network in promiscuous mode, it;ll catch al lpackets.. ive setup something like automatically writes the average to a mysql database per minute for IPs that I want to watch.

    If the bandwidth goes up significantly, it starts writing it every 5 seconds. You can set your program to alert you.

    Also there is a hardware appliance by allot, which sucks in my opinion, but it gives a graphical representation of your traffic. Very ugly blue java client, but it works.
