       bandwidthd  - Tracks usage of TCP/IP and builds html files with graphs.


       BandwidthD tracks usage of TCP/IP network subnets and builds html files
       with  graphs  to  display  utilization.  Charts are built by individual
       IPs, and display utilization over 2 day, 8 day, 40  day,  and  400  day
       periods.   Furthermore, each ip address’s utilization can be logged out
       at intervals of 2.5 minutes, 10 minutes, 1 hour  or  12  hours  in  cdf
       format.  HTTP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, VPN, and P2P traffic are color coded.

       The  configuration  file  "bandwidthd.conf"  is  described  in it’s own
       manual page.
