I just set up IP accounting on my 2601 for one interface (Ethernet)
Using the cipaf accounting fetcher to gather the accounting data and to summarize in some html pages. Works really nice.
Checkpoint table is read via SNMP, ip accounting table is cleared after each collecting (perl-script every 3 minutes via cron).
The only thing I don't understand is the way packets are collected:
- Should I enable both interfaces (Ethernet and WAN) to gather all traffic through the router
- is the Ethernet interface sufficient for collecting all traffic (does ip accounting only collect outgoing data)
I'm looking for all traffic collected and summarized going through my router, e.g. incoming _and_ outgoing data.
thx for any advice....
