Dear Fernando,

I thought about mrtg and snmp however each time i stop and start a domain, its ID and thus the corresponding network interface name from ifconfig changes, then how can one find out the exact network utilisation of a domain ? I tried to get a constant ID number each time a domain is restarted, however i failed. Any clues ?

May be a good idea to use mrtg. Mrtg uses SNMP for getting info from
network interfaces and display it to your browser in graphics. Ask Google
about mrtg, may be it should be exactly what you want.
