Cable Modem Counter is a cable modem (or any Ethernet connection) IP byte logger. It is not a packet sniffer, it just gathers network statistics. The daemon logs all the incoming/outgoing connections and creates pairs of source/destination IP addresses with a byte counter and direction of traffic (inbound or outbound) attached. It stores it periodically on a file (or files). It accepts network connections to gather the statistics and also can run scripts which can send commands to the daemon and receive information, like inbound/outbound traffic and separation of traffic based on network source/destination.
