That's not bandwidth, which is a why a firewall doesn't support it. Bandwidth 
is how /fast/ you can travel, traffic is how /far/ you can travel.

If you assign each customer a pf queue, you can use the output of `pfctl -vsq' 
as your base for monitoring. I don't know of any ready-made packages, maybe 
someone else or over on isp@ they know.
