Hello Managers

thanks to all.

my request:

"do you know any software that can tell me the number and the size of the packets
that a machine send to or receive from the network ?

I know perfmeter but it tell me the number of packets and not the size ...

I need to collect the data (number of packets and size) for one week and then
eventually build a graph .... (if I have the data stored into a file, then
I know how the manage them)"

snoop -V hostname |grep ETHER
is what I choosed

some alternative suggestions:
nfswatch (
MRTG Multi Router Traffic Grapher (in
