A recent thread on the OpenBSD-misc list got me to thinking about traffic accounting on OpenBSD. I use OpenBSD as an edge router and firewall on my home network, and have a small monitoring system built in. I know I'm not alone in this sort of setup. Several solutions I know of, some of which were mentioned here, are mon , which we featured here recently (mon covers more than just traffic, but does a good job of that), ipacc , ntop (which has had some security problems in the past, make sure you're up to date on it), and ipa .
Have a look at these and enjoy the traffic statistics you guys find and see if you can't improve the tools, also.
