I tried with Microsoft Netmonitor, but I don't know which column has to be added to get the Total usage (in MB).

I also want to know about what filter have to be applied to get only the INTERNET usages.

Is your network degenerated / simple enough that you can filter that via ip address? I mean, in my network you can not - there are different locations, so "private" traffic may go on the internet via one of our VPN links. Also, why do not measure this on the core infrastructure / Router - what is the use case for trying to get that via network monitor? – TomTom Feb 12 '13 at 17:55
I want to develop a application for a Internet cafe, which displays the each client's internet usages and to pay according to it . – Sreekumar Feb 12 '13 at 18:28
Well, i would suggest fixing that on the router level. A lot easier to measure traffic by internal ip on a decent router. – TomTom Feb 12 '13 at 20:05

I'm not sure that netmon is the best tool for this. perfmon.exe has a NIC/bytes in NIC/bytes out and NIC/total bytes counters. That might be a better bet if all you want to see if bandwidth consumption.
