Outgoing trafiq check

HI i have a vps server. which i just use for playing.
the vps provider they introduce a new trafiq monitoring system.according to that, in october my usages is 3GB which is almost impossible, this server is not live yet. nothing is on there. i setup it for mail and web server but still its isolated , i dindot host any websites.
anyway,. i contacted them,  according to  their monitoring system, every second 10 kb is uploading and downloading.
they said they will look in to this matter.

You can also try running ntop in daemon mode. It will track all traffic seen on the network, and provide you with a web display to view the stats.
