macwatch is a small daemon that counts in- and outbytes from a given MAC-address and stores the result in a file for use with MRTG. It will write the file every 5 minutes by default, and uses libpcap to do all the work.

Release Notes: A minor bug introduced by a previous bugfix was fixed. The mac-address check now allows addresses to be specified as dash-delimited numbers instead of colon-delimited numbers.
Release Notes: A crash bug and a data (config) corruption bug which in some cases led to it not working at all have been fixed. A minor file descriptor bug was also fixed.
Release Notes: This release enables logging of multiple hosts without starting several processes. It can read MAC addresses and log filenames from both an argument list and by reading one or more files.
