Can someone recommend and describe the setup of application that I can use to monitor bandwidth usage over a long period of time?
I’ve been using Vyatta for a while now to separate testing environments from my production environment. Recently, it was asked of me to monitor the amount of bandwidth used over the course of a month. I’ve looked as SolarWinds’ Bandwidth Monitor, but it only works in 60-minute ‘chunks’. I’ve also looked a Bandwidth Monitor, but it only works on Windows. I’d rather not setup a Windows Server box with RRAS just for this.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention that Vyatta/VyOS is the only Linux on the network. Everything else is Windows on the LAN-side of this environment.
