Try ProCurve Manager Plus (PCM+). A new version with a 60-day trial license is coming out on May 1 and will be available via web download.

Another tool which will allow you to graph Bandwidth and devices via SNMP is "The Dude". It's free and has a very small footprint.

Just standard bantwith monitoring. So no sflow stuff. Try http://www.cacti.net/. Open source and runs perfect.

Hi Abhinav,
NetWorx is a simple and free, yet powerful tool that helps you objectively evaluate your bandwidth situation. You can use it to collect bandwidth usage data and measure the speed of your Internet or any other network connection. NetWorx can help you identify possible sources of network problems, ensure that you do not exceed the bandwidth limits specified by your ISP, or track down suspicious network activity characteristic of Trojan horses and hacker attacks.
Check below link as follows,

Re: Which tool we use to monitor network Bandwidth

HP ProCurve switches support an industry standard network traffic monitoring technology, sFlow - see www.sflow.org). There are a number of applications that support this technology. One suggestion would be sFlowTrend (www.sflowtrend.com) which shows bandwidth usage of all links, who is using the bandwidth, and the protocols being used.
