Since this isLinux there's a host of
possibilities :}

You could use iptables, and analyse
the log-files (filtering out and adding
sizes using awk).

You could use ntop or ethercap or
tcpdump or ... go have a look at
http://freshmeat.net and search for
traffic analysis.


Cheers,
Tink

ipac-ng ... I never got that to work properly
(it wouldn't play with my postgreSQL) :)

It uses the iptables, though, and only allows
for database storage of routing information so
you can evaluate stuff later :)

Good luck!

Cheers,
Tink

I would just like to mention that there are a few petitions for a Counter Strike linux port. I personally feel it is alittle insulting when they produce a server but don't bother to include us [linux community] in their game without emulation [possible loss of edge despite the brilliance of wine etc etc].

Anyhow you might want to sign this one:

Tux wanna play!
