There are several tools you can use to monitor bandwidth usage, and
display them as a graph with rrdtool or mrtg. The issue is breaking it
down by application. The easiest way to do that would be at the switch
level via a managed switch. Even then, you'd only be able to manage
port usage, and not necessarily application usage.
