What are you trying measure the bandwidth off/on?
What's your set-up?

Hi Tinkster,

I would explain the current scenario first.

We have two ISPs, one primary and other as backup. then we have a transparent proxy which is also configured as a router for two subnets. We are currently using "Nagios" to monitor all hosts in the netwok.
Now, what I require is an Internet bandwidth utilization tool which can monitor bandwidth utilisation of individual systems in the network.
What I have already tried is "Baandwidth" tool on proxy but it did not turn out well. Also tried other tool which does not require to be installed on gateway, out of which "EtherApe" gave sine results but not so good in terms of accuracy and GUI interface.

Try installing mrtg...that's what it's made for, and has given great results for such things.
