Question Setting up a gateway server with bandwidth monitoring?


I'm setting up a ubuntu machine as an internet gateway,

I've set one up previous using iptables & firestarter which was fairly straight forward,

A couple of things I would like to do

- Monitor monthly bandwidth usage based on lan ip
- Restrict bandwidth on certain ips? maybe even restrict bandwidth during certain times?

I don't nessessarily need a step by step guide, just a point in the right direction and I should be able to figure out the rest

(I've looked into solutions which turn the machine into a dedicated gateway however that doesn't really work for me)

(Also the reason why this isn't in the ubuntu thread is because I'm considering doing this in either debian or freebsd)
