Projects / BW ACCT


BW Acct is a bandwidth accounting and reporting application. It is implemented as a C daemon which manages accounting rules in an iptables/netfilter firewall on the Linux 2.4/2.6 kernel. Support for multiple RDBMS is included, and a plugin architecture is provided for extending BW Acct to support other databases. BW Acct can provide accurate accounting of just about any firewall rule you can imagine.
