I need to be able to monitor and report on total bandwidth usage (in and out) on a windows 2008 server. This is so that i can cost the usage fees i am likely to incurr when moving to another datacenter provider.

I have tried Perfmon and data collectors, but cannot seem to get it to aggregate totals for me.

Does anyone know of a good way to do this ? Ideally i would be able to report on KB In, KB out of each network interface by day, week etc.

Many thanks
