do you want to know how much traffic each host on your lan is sending out? do you want to exclude lan-to-lan traffic?

Isn't it amazing how so many people can type "linuxpakistan.net" into their browsers but not "google.com"?

You can use Ntop which can provide bandwidth details per IP and lots of other details as well.

do you want to exclude lan traffic or don't you?

AOA,

There are some good utilities to monitor bandwidth such as NTOP and BANDWIDTHD.

I would also like to know which tool are you using to limit bandwidth on hosts or IP's. If you are using TC you can also use MRTG to create custom graphs of individual hosts. You just have to write a simple script.
Kind Regards
