I honestly don't think there is anything out there.

Bandwidth monitors are ten-a-penny, but actually controlling it? Forget it.
I looked at Packeteer and it's a fantastic product, does everything you need
but at around #27,000 (UKP) it's far too expensive for our needs.

There are other ways, a Linux box with routing software/filters sat between
your gateway and servers. But it's not an easy path to take.

We run a mixed NT/Linux/Solaris network and have yet to find anything that
will let us regulate bandwidth as well as monitor it. Believe me - it's not
for want of trying. If anyone reading this can recommend something that
doesn't cost tens of thousands and works seamlessly across a mixed network,
I'd love to know about it.

Good luck,
