Micromuse's Netcool/USM (Usage Service Monitors) will allow you to monitor
traffic on a per user or per port (type) basis. The USMs allow you to
monitor and generate notifications for defined thresholds and usage
Here is a URL to a more complete spec sheet:
Note: I work for Micromuse as a systems engineer, managing the integration
of our products at our customers' facilities.
