There's lots of logging potential in both that Cisco router and the PIX.
Problem is that there's little onboard storage on these devices, so
you'll need to setup a syslog server to store it and then configure the
devices to log the stats you're interested in to the server. It's not
all that hard to setup and should at least help you track down which IP
addresses are creating the most traffic.

Subject: Network Traffic Monitor
Grr, My network / internet keeps grinding to a halt at certain times of
I would like to find a way to see how much network resources each
computer is using, so i can find out why I have a bottle neck (virus,
download program, video streaming, a specific class, ...). I have a
cisco pix firewall, Cisco routers, and n2h2 content filter on its own
server which all internet traffic hits.
If anyone has any recommendation I would greatly appreciate it.
