how to measure the bandwidth PHP generates when talking to Sendmail or another MTA?

P: n/a
We've a Red Hat Linux box from which I'm serving websites and I need
to keep track of how much bandwidth each website uses. Keeping track
of bandwidth by directory is easy enough - there is a lot of free
software that automates the task.

However, I've written a PHP script that lets people send out email
from a control panel on their site. My understanding is that the PHP
talks to the server's MTA and sends out the email through it.

My question is, how does one measure this bandwidth?

If anyone is really competant about Red Hat/servers/PHP, please
mention your rates, as my company might want to hire you for a short,
one week consulting gig.

Hi,

I recently discovered a really (web) stats package that also works on mail
logs: AWStats. Very flexible.
It's free so it can't hurt looking into it:
