Measure how much I upload and Download


I would like to know if it is possible to measure how much I upload or download on the internet, and produce a log file of daily usage. My ISP does not do it.

Running slackware 10.1

there's a command line tool called ntop that produces the same kind of output as top, but for the network use. That should do what you need, just put it in a small script to log what you want.
