I would like to select a type of traffic, as I do in Wireshark, and measure the total traffic in each way for this filter.

Is it possible with Wireshark?

Is it possible with another Windows tool?

Seems like you found your answer but I just wanted to mention for anyone else reading this question, ntop is an excellent tool for this. Apparently it can be installed under windows.

A cetain protocol usually means a certain port (or a couple of them).

You can have firewall rules for specific ports and use a firewall that can count the amount of traffic for those rules.

For example, wipfw does that fine.

I just found in Wireshark a menu called Statistics, where you can see the total size of both the captured data and the filtered data.
