I remotely admin a server and am trying to come up with a simple way to monitor traffic. Lately, I have been manually using IPFW's count feature to monitor individual's bandwidth usage. We don't want to restrict any user's usage, we just want to be aware if someone starts trading mp3s, or if our usage comes to a point where we need more bandwidth. We are a small shop (four employees in the office) and we are using a single server for routing, firewall, and website hosting. I was planning on writing a simple script to email me and the boss a "ipfw show" every day. Is this a good way to do it? Will the extra 'count' entries be more of a burden on the system?
Please excuse my ignorance. Cheers, Jason To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
