Bandwidth Monitor

Does anyone know of a decent bandwidth monitor, I'm after a (free) app that will give information on my total network usage on the various devices in this machine (something like Net Traffic Meter on Windows).

I need an app that doesn't suffer from the nasty 32-Bit integer bug either, where-by the information loops at 4GB of throughput.

I have menu meters. Seems to suffer from the 4GB loop though, and the bwm-ng doesn't do totals, just current usage.

Will try leaving Menu Meters open for the next >4GB value to pass, see if it doesn't loop when open.

Problem is, that most of those apps get the total bandwidth from the kernel, and thus it will have flowed over at 4 GB.

They would need to monitor it every second, and figure out when it overflows.

I'd like something similar myself, but maybe simpler, that resides on the menu bar and has an accessible menu from there.

I'll check if ipfw has a way to monitor it, then with a simple firewall rule you can monitor the amount of transfer you have done, and then any program can easily grab the information.
