Wireshark newbie - I want to see which mac addresses are hogging the traffic in our network. Is there a way to get a report that gives traffic stats over time grouped by mac address.

Yes, go to:

Statistics -> Conversations -> Ethernet [a Tab]

Then sort the entries according to the column "Bytes".

Hint: Uncheck the option 'Name resolution' (lower, left corner) if you want to see the 'raw' (untranslated) MAC addresses.
