SNMP/ NetFlow, dhcp has very little to do with this.

Subject: Tracking GB Usage

Hi folks...

We're looking for ways to track GB transfer usage on a per subscriber basis.  This is on a rural cable modem network today (Cisco 7206VXR currently - shortly to be Arris4).

I'm told that ISC DHCP has no abilities built in to do this - nor can I find any DHCP system that does this on it's own.  Hope this isn't off-topic, but what is a reasonably cost effective way to track usage that doesn't involve much human intervention?  The reason we are hoping to keep it reasonably cost effective is because of the small scale this particular installation is (roughly 1400 subscribers in total).

Thanks in advance,
