Can I ask for some help re setting up NTOP and RRD to report on
Internet traffic bandwidth usage for devices in my home (e.g. PCs,
X-Box, appleTV etc etc). I want to be able to see the Internet usage
data: per internal device (IP), per day, per up/down (i.e. have these
breakdowns), for all protocols (i.e. all traffic). As an optional
extract, in a perfect world it would be nice to have it broken down to
peak versus non-peak for my ISP as well, as this is how the internet
bandwidth is capped and charged for.
 Can NTOP with RRD actually do this?
 What interfaces would I need to capture against? Is it just
"eth0" which is my firewall network card for the internal network, or
is it "ppp0" which is the network card out to my ISP, or do I need to
capture both? Again I really only want to have a report with the IP
addresses for devices in my home, and then their internet usage per
day, per up/down.
 In the RRD config what "Data to Dump" do I need? Eg Domains /
Flows / Hosts / Interfaces / ASs / Matrix
 Any other non-default RRD or NTOP configuration I need to tweak?
Thanks in advance.
