Default Network monitoring for clusters

Hello all...
I'm working on a research project at my Uni, and to sum things up, I need to figure out a way to monitor the network status of a computer cluster that is going to be doing some 3D processing.

I heard ethereal can do this, but my knowledge of this tool is very limited.

Seeing as I recall reading some of the guys at nvNews are network admins, I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

BTW, all of the computers are running Fedora Core 8.
I am currently using (or at least trying to use) Ganglia to monitor performance and resources over the grid.

I thank you all.
