Gateway traffic reporting tool (port)

Hi all,

I have a small home LAN with four machines. One of them (mine, actually)
runs FreeBSD 5.1 and serves as a NAT/gateway between the LAN and an ADSL

I would like a tool for traffic reporting, detailing traffic information
for each LAN computer (by IP or MAC address) so that I know who uses
more bandwidth. This information should be provided on a time interval
basis (e.g., between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., how much traffic per IP/MAC
address). If possible, I would like to know traffic from my localhost
regardless of what it is forwarding (as it is the default gateway for
the LAN, I don't know if that would be possible).

TIA for any suggestions,

Augusto Jun Devegili
