can any application in ciscoworks allow the user to view the network transfer of the core switch? we have a 6500 switch and the manager insists that he want to view the bandwidth usage and network transfer from ciscoworks. since i am newbie i really wanna know if this is possible.

If you have the CiscoWorks RWAN bundle, it includes Internetwork Performance Monitor (IPM). IPM will allow one to work in conjunction with the embedded Service Assurance Agent (SAA) components of a router; so an MSFC in a 6500 would have that capability.

If you have a non-MSFC chassis, you could use the embedded RMON MIB in the Supervisor module for a crude sort of traffic analysis - although that may be fine for first order performance analysis. In my opinion, you are probably better off using a tool like MRTG (open source / freeware) or Solarwinds (low cost) for display and analysis of that data.
