A newbie question, but I have a PHP site running on dedicated Centos server with plesk control panel and wonder how much bandwidth is being consumed. Is there a tool or code that measures bandwidth per month, per day etc?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Plesk already has a "Statistics" area which includes that information, among other things. Is there a reason you're not just using it?

(Or is it that you want something additional for comparison or whatever?)

You'd want something like vnStat. It works at the level of the network stack's own traffic counters and is therefore "light" on monitoring overhead.
