Have you tried the Statistics/Endpoint Option? If you select the IP tab you can sort by packets or bytes and see which nodes have the most RX/TX values. Or are you looking for something else?

For that you could use Statistics/Conversations, and sort by the IP or TCP tab to see which IPs have the most packets/bytes going in and out, and by looking at the bps column you'll see the average throughput as well. If you found something interesting, use the context sensitive popup menu to filter on any selected communication to see the packets it is made of.
