    network traffic monitor on windows vps

    I have a windows 2003 vps and I need way monitor how much traffic I make per month. I believe I'm getting close to my quota and I need to measure it.

    I've seen some nice free programs that claim to work on windows 2003 server but the fact is they don't use a service so they only work while the GUI program runs, which is obviously silly for a server!

    What do you guys use for this? I mean other then web traffic tools since most of my traffic is not HTTP!

    not really. If it's just a normal windows application then it need a user logged in, with an active session, to work. A windows service is a must in a server environment.

    Is there any freeware app to do this?

    Thanks! Prtg6 looks perfect for what I need. The only regret about it is that I can only view reports on a period of 1, 30 or 356 days ending today and can't select my own period from a calendar. Calendaristic months (that are also used for billing in the dc) would have been much more useful.

    Thanks again.
