Bandwidthd is a UNIX daemon/Windows service for graphing the traffic generated by each machine on several configurable subnets. It is much easier to configure than MRTG, and provides significantly more useful information. MRTG only tells you how much bandwidth you are using, Bandwidthd tells you that, and who is using it. Each IP address that has moved any significant volume of traffic has its own graph. The graphs are color coded to help you figure out at a glance if your user is surfing the web, or surfing Kazaa. Bandwidthd is targeted to run on my routing platforms. It is very low overhead. Easily graphing small business traffic on a 133Mhz Elan 486 every 2.5 minutes. My entire ISP (2000-3000 IP addresses across 4 states) is graphed on a Celeron 450 every 10 minutes.
