For traffic accounting I think to export these values by using SNMP. If so you will be able to read them with MRTG.

February 18, 2008 at 11:58 am #46112 raymondMember another cool tool for monitoring traffic is iptraf: http://iptraf.seul.org/ @admin: Is it onboard? Can you post all included packages in ZeroShell on the homepage?

This information is very usefull to fastly find a bootleneck. Another interesting parameter is the induced jitter for each class of traffic. As soon as a queue has too many paquets in it, you know that you should do something to solve the problem. Queue statistics is the key to set a good QOS system. IPtraf or all other external monitoring system will not give you an inside view of the router QOS queues. That’s why it is important to monitor those parameters through SNMP or similar protocols.
