Hope I have not committed any faux pas in this post. I did a search and did not come up with anything. I am looking for a way to capture over a long period of time the total bytes a computer both sends and the total bytes it receives of its network connection. I know you can pull up task manager and get a count of what has been sent and received since you opened task manager, but I did not know if this would be the best option to track this by leaving task manager open over an extended period of time.
Does anyone have any expertise in this area that could shed some light on what would be the best method of capturing this information?

Based on some of my own Google searches, it sounds like Network Monitor with the Top Users Expert extension will allow you to monitor traffic between interfaces and get a total byte count. I haven't personally used the software, and Network Monitor alone may be sufficient, but I would definitely give it a try!
