Network Agent works by monitoring overall network usage, including bytes transferred. It logs usage summaries—which include start time and end time, overall bytes used, and bytes used per protocol—at predefined intervals.
When used, Network Agent is typically configured to see all traffic in your network, and can distinguish between requests sent from internal machines to internal machines (hits to an intranet server, for example) and requests sent from internal machines to external machines such as web servers (user Internet requests, for example).
