Hi, I have a large PC network (virtual & real machines) with a number of industrial PLC's also on it. I would like to find out how many of them are running a particular application.

Is there any app that I can run that can "sniff" the network machines and confirm how many and what pc's are running that particular app.

The app i trying to confirm is running relates to the industrial PLC network and too many copies of this application running “boggs” down comms between them / access to get online to a particular PLC via the Ethernet network. so I want to audit the network and shut down any apps that are not necessary.

Thanks in advance.

I've used Layton Technologies Auditwizard in the past, this runs on the machines and audits all software and where possible the keys used on them and reports back. runs silently or interactively with the user.
That will show what is installed but not what is running on the machines.

Some corporate Antivirus allows you to log when applications are run, Ie symantec endpoint security can log application usage

Depending on your network switches you could configure them up to log source and destination ip's for particular ports used.
