Re: Managing Network bandwidth

hi peter & community,

you are right. the "best" case for your problem is that people tend to
use the available bandwith. but not only the users, your browser also
tends to take as much as possible. but enough for that. do you have, for
example, any FTP servers online?

I saw different cases where there have been exploits and the result was
an incredible ammount of traffic due to some file sharing. i also
suggest to have a look via wireshark just to be sure there is no strange
behaviour like excessive uploads from your servers.

I hope that I am wrong in this case and no enemy is on your servers.

Rgds,

Andre
Hi all!

In my organization, we have had to upgrade our internet bandwidth two
times last year 2011. The same happened the first and second time,
after upgrading the connection became quite fast but this lasted for
just a few weeks and it started dragging again! Our thoughts are in
two main direction.

1. Maybe the ISP is not telling us the truth, maybe they are not
really giving us what we are paying for. Is there a way we can
verify/monitor the bandwidth we are receiving from the ISP? The
solution can be on either Windows or Linux platform

2. Maybe with more bandwidth are staffs are downloading more stuffs -
non office related stuffs. We had a bandwidth manager some time ago
but I will not like to get that one up again because it was not
transparent - people had to logon before being able to use the
internet. I will like one that can seamlessly manage the network
bandwidth for each person/department without demanding people to
login. Again, the solution can be on either Windows or Linux platform.

Thanks guys!

Peter
