Another tool that can aid in checking the utilisation of your firewall 
rules is "ipac".  You can set it up to monitor particular chains, and it 
will count the traffic through those chains (at present, I just use it 
to double-check Telstra's billing).  You could use ipac to do stuff like 
checking how much traffic is being handled by particular rules, and tune 
the rules appropriately.
