If the firewall device supports netflow, you could use one of the
netflow collector/reporter ports. Otherwise you'll have to setup a
mirror port on a switch, direct all the packets to another machine and
use a program that captures/counts the packets on the wire and does the
Fyi, for real-time address/protocol LAN statistics, we submitted a port
a few months ago in net/ltm. You can add your own protocol types, but
you'll need to read the supplied manual entries first :)
