For the Squid server, use pwebstats - we used to use it here at the 
office until our System Administrator got too lazy to maintain it ;)

I'm starting to use IPAC on the ADSL router at our home - I haven't 
gotten to setting up individual rules for each machine in the house, but 
I'll be working on that pronto.  I'm trying to accurately measure the 
amount of traffic generated by Diablo II - I think it's in the order of 
10-20Mb an hour... but I digress.

Eventually I'll get IPAC and RRDTOOL working together to produce some 
really whizz-bang graphs (I'm a Mac weenie - if it can't be drawn, it 
doesn't exist ;), but in the meantime I just have a number which 
represents the bytes sent or received since the beginning of the month.
