Take a look at:

I've used almost all of the tools on that list at one time or another. A list of my favorites (sniffer-type tools) would include:

ntop -- great at getting a good overall picture (top-talkers, etc)
ethereal -- good protocol analysis, reads pcap (tcpdump) output natively
snort -- for all your IDS needs
dsniff -- for monitoring traffic and capturing passwords when necessary
tcpdump -- I use this most often.  Great for quick, down-n-dirty sniffs.

I have been having all kinds of quirky network problems at one of my facilities. I always used SnifferPro to identify “top talkers” and babbling machines.

Now that I work for “The Hive” I am no longer allowed to purchase licenses for such wonderful products.

So the question is more of a poll of what the “best of the best” use for there networks.

M$ and *NIX  cheap and free.
