Is there something like that or a simple way to find out for OS 13.2
available somewhere,
ready to install and use? I just need simple numbers: how much did I
download and upload
from/to internet on this single machine per day.

gkrellm

One of the features is that measures the network usage: day, week, month.

I also wrote a script that digs this information from network manager and
writes a log. I'll
have to look it up in my laptop later and tell you how I do it, and if it
still works.


Wow, good old gkrellm still alive kicking and?
As I recall it had a remote monitoring feature to monitor a remote gkrellm
installed in another
machine.

But these also run the risk of monitoring local network traffic, unless it is
installed
on the gateway machine.

If Daniel connects his machine directly to the internet, that wont be an issue.
If Daniel uses his phone as a wifi-hotspot he might be able to get these
numbers from the phone.
(I mention this because he mentioned a mobile contract was involved).
