Hoth - google on Hoth for more information.

It's a set of ipchains firewall accounting rules - they are "empty rules"
but they provide per protocol bytes accounting. It reads the accounting rules
and puts the data into an RRDTool database and does web pages with per 
protocol graphs.

You have to have RRDTool installed & working first.

Also, the documentation included with Hoth is vague and it's actually
wrong in a couple of places. Mostly about pathnames to locations of
the .rrd database file...location of the CGI scripts...etc.

Being a linux newbie, I was still able to find where the corrections
needed to be made.

I was pretty happy with the results too, though it was a real bear
to get working properly.

Lotsa Luck.
