Data Analysis

Thanks to Network Probe, I can now see which computers are taking the network bandwidth. Now, is there a way to see specifically what the computer is sending and receiving?
Internally, I would like to see what directories are being accessed, or the data which is being transferred.
When I see an internal computer connected to an outside website, I would like to see what the user is doing.
Is this possible?
Thanks!

Hi,

as you said Network Probe lets you see which computers are taking the network bandwidth. Network Probe lets you also see what protocols the computer uses and all the computers conversations. If a host for example is surfing the web you will see that he is using http protocol and which website the host is surfing on.

What kind of protocols hosts are using are shown in the "Protocols per host" tab in the "Traffic Statistics" tab:

For a hosts conversations check the "Conversations" tab:

Markus - Once I find the bandwidth user, and see what website they are visiting, is there any way to see the actual traffic? I need to determine what the user is doing on a particular site. If it is business related, then no problem. However, if it is personal, I need to admonish the user to not take all the bandwidth during business hours. Do you have any recommendations?

Hi,

you can not see what the user is doing on the website no. But the nature of the website could reveal to you whether it is for private or business matters. Is a user surfing on facebook for example you know it is private. If you see such traffic you could add a alarm to this traffic to let network probe automatically watch that users traffic.

Check out this site on how to monitor your users:

To monitor given users conversations with for example facebook use the "My conversations" window and add a conversation from your user and facebooks server.
