squid-log analyzer OR a good bandwidth analyzer


I'm looking for a program that I can use to keep track of how much bandwidth goes to the various computers in my small network.
All of the bandwidth goes through my squid server, so the easiest would be to just have a program that can accurately analyze the squid logs and tell me how much bandwidth is going to the different computers.

I've tried both "bandwidthd" and "calamaris" I can't figure out how to get either one to actually do anything in Ubuntu.

Any hints? any new programs I can try that might work?

I would try SARG.
http://sarg.sourceforge.net/sarg.php
Installation is pretty easy: apt-get install sarg
Config file: /etc/squid/sarg.conf (as far as I remember in Ubuntu).
It generates html reports so you need apache for that.

sys, do you know if names like "computer1.local" can be used in the "/etc/squid/sarg.hosts" file?
Or do I have to install some kind of dns software?
I'm currently just using the default Ubuntu software (ie: Network Manager).

Sarg isn't running automatically.

If I run it manually (/etc/cron.daily/sarg), it sits (without doing anything obvious) for at least an hour.

So, going into the folder without waiting for it to complete: http://localhost/squid-reports/Daily/, it gives me a list of folders.
From here I have no idea how I can tell what bandwidth is used up for each IP address...

Any clues?

Hi!
I used "lightsquid" rpm. Download and unpack the package in /var/www/html directory using:
#tar -xvzf lightsquid-<ver>.tgz and follow the procedure as mentioned in "lightsquid-<ver>/doc/install.txt" file.
Hope this helps...

lightsquid will definitly work (if I can figure out permissions):
Code:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /lightsquid/index.cgi on this server.
Apache/2.2.11 (Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80
index.cgi is set to executable

lightsquid/group.cfg:
Code:
admin 01 SysAdmin
lightsquid/realname.cfg
Code:
127.0.0.1 admin
/etc/apache2/httpd.conf
Code:
root@kimende-s:/etc/apache2# cat httpd.conf 
<Directory />
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
</Directory>
<Directory /var/www>
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
</Directory>

<Directory "/var/www/lightsquid">
    AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
    AllowOverride All
    Allow from all
</Directory>
The "lightsquid/check-setup.pl" returned all good, so I'm not sure what else to try...
