How do I monitor?



My network for packet collisons?

I have a network consisting of 5 sites/100 computers. Each site is connected with routers, and we are using hubs at the main site. Ameritech/SBC just finsihed upgrading us to a full T1 network, and they noticed some packet collisions. They told me to monitor this, and find out what the problem is.

I think the hubs at the main location are going to need to be upgraded to switches, but I need to verify this. Can anyone suggest a program to use to monitor the network for packet collisons, and that shows me what segment is causing it??

Your help is appreciated.


What OS do you have... i know in win2k server theres an option to do just what you want. but its been so long since ive used it... im sure someone here knows...

Try Ethereal. I'm not sure if it's what you are looking for but it can dump traffic anyway. I seriously believe you want switches for that kind of network.
