The number of bytes transfered since the last counter reset can be
found in the first line of your .log file.

As long as your router doesn't reset, you don't reset the counters and
the counter doesn't overflow, you can use this number.

The format of that line is <time> <ifInOctets> <ifOutOctets> as seen
from the device.  If you're monitoring the interface that's connected
to the internet, you want the ifInOctets counter.  If you're monitoring
the interface that's nearest to your computer, you want ifOutOctets.

To make kilobytes from this number divide by 1000.  To make harddisk
kilobytes, divide by 1024.
