Our hosting company is currently stinging us for bandwidth usage on our web servers. At the moment, we have no idea where the bandwidth is going! Does anyone have any good recommendations of programs to monitor the bandwidth usage for individual sites on iis 6? Or in fact, for everything coming in and out of the machine in case its not actually iis using the bandwidth. The server also runs sql and some of our sites access external databases (would this sort of data show up in iis logs?).
Ideally we wanted to stay away from analysing log files as we do not have a lot of space for storing them (the main server that is causing the bandwidth usage on our account is pretty busy) and log files will not show bandwidth usage outside of iis but if there isn't anything else, logging will at least tell us if the problem is within iis or elsewhere. We are looking at http://www.livebandwidth.com , does anyone have any experience with using this in a production environment?
