I think that has been recently discussed on the Cobalt users lists (I didn't
read that thread as I don't charge for bandwidth use so I don't know if an
answer was provided for name based monitoring which I know has been
something of a Holy Grail for some hosting companies.)

have a little search through:

I did a brief search for bandwidth monitoring and found a post which also
mentions IPTraf. That may help if you've allocated a separate IP. Otherwise
if you do discover the H.G. please enlighten us.
