Excellent, thanks for the response, I'll be looking into this app on Monday.

What about monitoring the servers in-depth, from what I've read this tool
only works with routers.

thx again :)

This seems to be a little more complicated than rrdtool/mrtg. This sort of
accounting is extraction of flows. Known as Cisco's NetFlow Feature. Most of
Cisco routers can do netflow accounting. For the collecting of this flows
need additional software. A well known name is Dave Plonka's Netflow. Have a
look at this links:
