Or just use a device that won’t let one device eat up the entire pipe?

They want to know specifically what device/IP address/MAC address on their LAN 
is moving a lot of traffic (like a kid's gaming PC with Steam, or an XboxOne, 
or whatever)?  I would suggest some sort of home router that can do per device 
cumulative accounting like this. The $50 ubnt edgerouter has this in its GUI, I 
believe.  Or the $99 one.

so we got this:
"Can yotu help us somehow figure out what is using all of our data? We have 
looked at the daily usage and can not figure it out. There are days that we 
have been gone for several hours and the usage is VERY high. Then days we are 
home have been extremely low. We are at a loss; can you help us or recommend 
someone who can. Is there a way to break this down hourly? Thanks!

this is the one in ten request, the other 9 are normally "we didnt do this you 
people are lying,we never use the internet, our kids follow rules, youre 
cheating us" in a real catty voice

screw those 9 douches, its usually one of the spouses porn affliction, the kids 
game console. or the fact they leave 5 units running in the house with netflix 
on autoplay, if theyre not illegally torrenting some shit.

but, there is the one, who arent cocks, they genuinely want to know. We arent 
providing them a router, so monitoring from there directly is out

we just recently moved DNS to us (huge value I have already found) So whats the 
best way (to the account, not the individual machine) to track this down, in 
our environment, We have mikrotik 1100ahx2 from to AP to the edge, and for the 
firs time, I actually want to set up a tool to help the 10 percent and if you 
guys who know more than me can spit out a script to drop in to monitor this 
customer I can pretend I have value within th company. .

If you only see yourself as part of the team but you don't see your team as 
part of yourself you have already failed as part of the team.
