Default total traffic per day/wk/mo/yr reports

I have a client which just entered an agreement with a small local cable internet provider which has a monthly usage cap. I would like to set up something on the firewall (OBSD 4.6) that I can log into via SSH and run a command to show me the current usage report for the day/wk/mo/yr. The ISP sends out warning emails when the quota is getting close, so I don't need a warning system. Just the report to confirm the ISP's numbers and to be able to check on our own. Long ago I used ipa, but would like to know if there is some new snazzy solution here.

I already use that. I'm not looking for averages. I'm looking for actual bytes transfered.

Check out vnStat. I can't post the URL because I have not posted 5 times to the Forum. I have used it on Linux and FreeBSD and it works with no issues.

Here's the output
Code:

Or maybe to check netflows with pflow (4) and nfcapd/nfdump could be an idea? Its quite easy to setup and really powerful/awesome!

I had written something like vnstat in the past. The rx/tx bytes from the NIC usually doesn't correspond well with the download figure the ISP is charging you for.

And this would be because why? It would be kind of self-defeating if it's not accurate.

When I try to build (make all) vnstat, I get this:
Code:
# make all
gcc -O2  -c vnstat.c
gcc -O2  -c ifinfo.c
gcc -O2  -c dbxml.c
gcc -O2  -c dbshow.c
gcc -O2  -c dbaccess.c
gcc -O2  -c dbmerge.c
gcc -O2  -c common.c
gcc -O2  -c misc.c
gcc -O2  -c cfg.c
gcc -O2  -c traffic.c
gcc  vnstat.o ifinfo.o dbxml.o dbshow.o dbaccess.o dbmerge.o common.o misc.o cfg.o traffic.o -lm -o vnstat
ifinfo.o(.text+0x157): In function `getiflist':
: warning: strcat() is almost always misused, please use strlcat()
gcc -O2  -c vnstatd.c
gcc -O2  -c dbcache.c
gcc  vnstatd.o ifinfo.o dbaccess.o dbcache.o common.o misc.o cfg.o -lm -o vnstatd
ifinfo.o(.text+0x157): In function `getiflist':
: warning: strcat() is almost always misused, please use strlcat()
gcc -O2  -c vnstati.c
gcc -O2  -c image.c
gcc  vnstati.o image.o dbaccess.o dbmerge.o common.o misc.o cfg.o -lm -lgd -o vnstati
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgd
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
*** Error code 1

Stop in /home/stuff/vnstat-1.10/src (line 17 of Makefile).
Not good at diagnosing build problems. It appears the issue is with the -igd parameter.

The parameter is -lgd which means "include the gd library when linking". Most likely, the library was not found on the path understood by the linker.

Pretty obvious error message, it can't link with the gd library.. it's a library used for generating images.

This is a dependency problem, install the package.
$ sudo pkg_add gd

EDIT: ocicat beat me to it.
