Help define what I am looking for Please

My system: (Main Office)
1 Main File Server (PDC, DHCP, Print, DNS and SQL plus Greatplains Dynamics plus Medical records dedicated software)
1 Citrix Metaframe Server
2 Email Servers
1 Web server
Main Office 50 Pcs 10 thin clients 10/100 netgear switches
5MB Fiber wan to branch offices.

Branch Office 1:
1 File Server (local profiles and Print)
30 PCs 15 Thin Clients

Branch Office 2:
1 File Server (Local Profiles and Print)
10 PCs 5 Thin Clients

What I want to be able to do is monitor all the servers and applications running across the wan links to be able to determine why my medical records application is slow across the whole system,  My branch offices all connect through either a Full client ICA(Citrix) session to a published application or through a thin client to a full desktop.

I would also like to be able to do some reporting on what web sites users are viewing (acceptible Use Policy reporting)

I am not good at prefmon so I am looking for a good (less expensive) monitoring software that I can tell what is happening on the entire network.


RE: Help define what I am looking for Please

I am subscribed to w2knews weekly news letter and they keep on bragging about this LanHound Network packet Sniffer, if it is as good as they claim it is then run for it, maybe they have a free trial or something like it: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/product....;
