Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

If someone knows any software with these features:

  • Works from the tray area
  • Very lightweight
  • Works also in Windows XP (preferably workstation, nothing serverish required)
  • Can show a bandwidth usage graph, where I can easily see each PC's usage
  • I can inspect a computer's connections, find out the ports and applications that are using them (eg, all bandwidth is consumed by PC #3, that's running uTorrent.exe from port 33003)

...I'd happily check it out. I'm only sharing my connection with (at most) four computers - I'd prefer not having to add hardware or reinstall my system.

Perhaps Microsoft Network Monitor 3.3 would work if you played around with it?

You could use wireshark for some in depth analysis.

May be useful

Network analysers (sniffer) is good for troubleshooting. But collect too detail information for continous usage.

Use Spiceworks. It is free and I am pretty sure it can do everything you want so long as you have SNMP turned on at all of your switches.
