If linux based.....

sudo apt-get install vnstat

then

ifconfig

note active eth e.g eth0, eth1 etc

then

vnstat -u -i eth0 (assuming eth0 active) (most likely need to be root)

then for hourly transfer amount (all on one line)

xterm -bg white -fg black -font -*-fixed-medium-r-*-*-32-*-*-*-*-*-
iso8859-* -T "vnstat hourly" -hold -e vnstat -h

or daily transfer amount (all on one line)

xterm -bg white -fg black -font -*-fixed-medium-r-*-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-
iso8859-* -T "vnstat daily" -hold -e vnstat

Can do weekly and monthly as well.

Adjust above commands to adjust font size (i.e change 18 or 32)

man vnstat for more info

or

Don't know if this will do what you want. I haven't used it either, I just
spotted it in another NG, today.

Do not under any circumstances use a real email address to sign up to
Solarwinds - they will spam you silly with upgrade offers, trial ofers
and general bullshit for evermore.

Their software however is really good, as are the Kiwi Enterprises apps
that they have just bought (a pity really as the price will now go
through the roof).

Easier to cut and paste than a list of tabs to find and buttons to click.

Thanks for the heads-up. I haven't as yet downloaded this or registered
with solarwinds. It's good to know if a company likes to spam you, well in
advance

Thanks for the Help but all I want is a dead simple program that will monitor
all my Lan usage traffic, so I don't exceed my Cap.

Running on XP..

I know there's a Firefox extension that will do this.
<http://netusage.iau5.com/>

Here's a link to some others (including FF extensions) that look fairly
user friendly:
