Network usage statistics
Posted on 2002-05-24
Ok, lately it seems that my internet connection is lagging. What I'm trying to do is get some hard numbers about how much of the line is actually being utilized, by what ip addresses (source address), and for what services (protocol/port) and at what times.
I have been looking into tcpdump, ethereal, and snort - but these tools seem like overkill for what I am trying to do. It also seems as if these tools are only usefull for capturing the packets, but not actually generating reports for them.
Is there some kind of tool suite availible for monitoring these things or a way to configure the above tools to get the reports I need?
