Due to my households use of 3 BG in only 6 days ( According to the Evil Empire that is ) and currently having to pay for the extra usage over this limit, I am in the need of a program that will allow me to monitor which URL/'s have been connected to and from which internal address.

Currently I am using IP chains on a Linux Kernel, and am in need of a program that will allow me to monitor this traffic and log it to a file. If anyone knows of how to log connections to the appache server ( All connections not just failed attempts ) it would be of greate help.

Later,

If you use a transparent proxy combined with squid all the webpages viewed will be logged to /var/log/squid/access.log including which IP requested the page.

You could then use a squid analyser such as http://www.squid-graph.dhs.org/ to graph and record how much a particular IP uses. It also records the amount of mb's the squid missed and therefore had to fetch from the Internet.

man ipchains

append -l to log anything matching a www rule and read the syslog or kern.log (varies with distro). Might want some kind of log processor if you're going to try and digest 3 Gb worth.

or

Are you asking where the logfiles for apache are?
This will only help identify traffic served by you...
See
/etc/apache/httpd.conf
and
httpd.apache.org/docs/
or
/var/log/apache

Turn IP resolution on so you get something more than just the originating IP.
Apologies if I've just insulted you.

Use squid.

iptables also has the ability to monitor traffic through designated interfaces. You will need to enable the counter on the internal interface to capture and masqueraded traffic though.
