iptables accounting monster (iam) is a traffic reporting tool for iptables.
Version: 0.0.2iptables accounting monster (iam) is a traffic reporting tool for iptables. Currently it can generate daily reports in plain text and HTML format. It can also create summaries (month or year) of these daily reports.
Operating System: Linux
While looking for a traffic reporting tool, I didn't find something that i looked for. So I started to write iam, which:
is free software
works with Linux 2.4 iptables
is written in Python, a readable language (i.e. not perl, awk or shell script)
is secure (i.e. only be root where you need to be root)
doesn't depend on a specific web server or database server
can generate reports for routers or servers
can generate reports in plain text or HTML format
can calculate costs for traffic (currently only price per MB, but bulk discounts should be included soon)
