It’s been a while since anyone has asked this question and IMHO non of the previous posts really answered the questions directly.
My remote site is currently reporting about 2500 aircraft a day and I might be needing to make changes to the ISP. I wanted to see how much data I was actually consuming to see what my potential costs could be. I don’t have a way to look directly at the switch for usage for what the specific IP is using. I need a way to use the application or the PI to report on it’s monthly usage directly. Am, I missing something already available???
It’s a remote site so my logic was that there won’t be any local traffic - Plus using the vnstati method, all traffic is monitored so it will actually give a good true indication of all data in and out of the Pi.
One of my sites has gone long stretches with no traffic other than the Pi.
Typical reporting was 250~300 planes per day (I’ll see if I can verify this).
My ISP metered ~20Mb per day without MLAT, 60Mb/day with MLAT
