If you're using ipfw(8) on a machine acting as a gateway and your
ruleset is configured with one rule per port, you can read the packet
and byte counters for each rule:

(root)# ipfw show;

By knowing what standard services correlate to each port (http on port
80, FTP on port 21, etc), you can get a pretty good idea of traffic.
It's not exactly the ideal solution, but it's a thought.
