Try to setup a firewall that logs the amount of traffic.

You can then:
   allow http in and count
   allow ssh in and count
   allow all in and count

(of course you may also want to block something, this is outside
the scope of my mail).

When you've setup such a system, just query the counters from the
firewall software.
