Hi all,

Anyone got any suggestions for monitoring network usage by hostclient/protocol?

I am occassionally involved with debugging why our internet bandwidth
is "slow" - and I am sure I am not the only person who has been here
and I assume there are some simple tools for this sort of thing.

I am not after debugging tools like netstat, lsof, or tcpdump. 
Excellent as they are, they are too fine grained.

Ideally this would work with our iptables based firewall/router that
does DMZ as well.
