Track Traffic on Linux Server

Another question we had today was about tracking traffic on a Linux Server, i.e. daily, hourly, weekly and monthly statistics on bandwidth usage. This helps us keep the machine secure, and notice any untoward or extremely high traffic; another easy install:

apt-get install vnstat
# or
yum install vnstat
 

vnstat -u -i eth0
