Is there a Linux utility that can monitor vsftpd.log an extract bandwidth usage information for every user ?

share|improve this question

I believe AWStats does VSFTPD bandwidth usage information.

I'm not 100% sure about each user (i personally use ProFTPD+MySQL) but hopefully that helps.

Can you give me more details about ProFTPD+MySQL? Can that show traffic for every user ? – Claudiu Apr 27 '10 at 21:53
Yep. And because its in SQL, I can freely query it how i want to. Shows how to setup ProFTPD and MySQL for "Virtual Hosting", and gives a little more information on how to setup ProFTP to log to a MySQL table. – GruffTech Apr 27 '10 at 22:26
