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.
