net-acct logs network traffic. It provides a daemon (nacctd) that logs all traffic passing through the machine it runs on. Capability is provided to associate traffic to slip/ppp users if you run a slip/ppp server.

You should use this because:
You are providing IP to customers and want to charge them based on the traffic they generate.
You are a statistics freak and want to see how much of your network traffic is for NetNews, FTP, WWW etc.

What's New in This Release:
revised docs and Makefile slightly (added -O2 etc)
increased default hash table size and improved algorithm
added ICMP masquerading and masq bug fixes
fixed bug with multiple notdev definitions in naccttab
added PLIP header entry to naccttab.sample
fixed disable entry in naccttab from field 8 to 7 for 0.5 compatibility
fixed problem with promisc devices not being reinitialized on SIGHUP
