Too many possibilities to list, I'm afraid. :-} Since I'm dealing almost
exclusively with Linux servers, *I* would have the NTP packets matched
by iptables ACCESS rules on the host itself (in whatever detail you'ld
like to see in the final graphs), read the rules' counters in regular
intervals (using cron, MRTG, Nagios, whatever), and graph from there.

... we *are* talking about the *NTP peer's interfaces'* bandwidth, not
the totals at your Internet uplink, aren't we ... ?
