MRTG or RRD tool is your friend.  You use them to poll the routers every 5 minuts.  The log file tells the story and is parsable.  Its plain text and doesn't grow.

  Subject: [freeside] Revisited: Bandwidth billing


  I was just browsing through the archives looking for threads on "bandwidth billing", and saw a good one.  However, that was some time ago (relatively speaking) and  was curious if thisis something that is planned for a near-future release?

  We have colocation customers, as well as ADSL and wireless Internet users for which we do charge for extra bandwidth over and above what their package allows.  We use a program called "snmpwalk" to figure out the bandwidth used by a Customer.  If you wish, I can give you details of how it works if this is something that you may be interested in adding in (perhaps as a module, and no necessarily built right in?)
