I need a network usage monitor for linux like vnStat that have the ability to turn off metering at specific hours.
I have a broadband connection with limited and unlimited bandwidth respect to time. I have unlimited internet during 2.00am to 8.00am and limited internet of 2.5GB per month during other times. So if I use vnStat, i cannot count the actual usage of my 2.5GB (which is from 0800 to 0200). While I was in windows, I used networx which did the job perfectly. I cannot find an alternatives in linux. I used that in linux using wine, it works fine but I need to install wine for this single 2mb executable.
I like to know about alternatives in linux or some trick like startup-shell-script to make vnStat or any other work only at my hours.
I am using ubuntu 13.04 (gnome-shell) .
