    Where do you even begin? I've found that many enterprises haven't a clue when they're being DDoS'd...Given that, how could they possibly know what their bandwidth requirements are. First and foremost, you need to look to see what's actually happening on your network - get that ever elusive baseline and go from there. A good network analyzer such as WildPackets OmniPeek is great for this.

    I'm no expert but I think a very valuable tool is SNMP. It's useful for managing devices on IP networks including routers, switches, servers, workstations, printers, modem racks.
