In my LAN, all my client PCs are windows XP and all these clients access the internet through a redhat linux. currently the internet usage at my place increase alot.  I know that in my organization, VOIP call, instant messaging, email, internet surfing are allowed.

So I want to know whether there is a way that at a particular time I can see a report that show the Mbs used by email, instant messaging, ... and also what IP use that MBs.

if there is any software that is similar to my requirement, please recommend.

    if you have iptables installed on Linux, simply do a
      iptables -L -n -v

    otherwise you may install iproute2

    I recommend you NetAms software. It's capable of building reports, like you have requested.
    Manual configuration is required, but there is a good documentation.
