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.
now i want to know :

1)is there any software i can install in linux so that i will be able to see, incomming trafiq and outgoing trafiq ??

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.

You can run ntop in daemon mode (ntop -D),
The web interface is at http://hostname:3000. It will show current and historical info.
