Hi all. Got a question. I got a box on my network that I'd like to be
able to track bandwidth usage on. Just to see how much traffic is
passing through it in a one month period and daily over a 24 hour
period. Is there some kind of application I can use to log total bytes
sent and total bytes recieved? I don't need to know specifically WHAT
was sent, but rather HOW MUCH of it was sent. IE 6 gigs inbound
traffic, 2 gigs outbound traffic. It's running Freebsd 4.9 right now.
What is the easiest way to do this short of setting up IPFW and doing a
kernel compile and all that nasty stuff. Any suggestions will be welcome.
