Monitoring internet traffic of devices in home network

#1
Platform: RPi 3
NEMS Linux version: 1.5
NEMS Build number: Build 8

Hi everyone,

I have just enough network knowledge to do some serious damage to someones setup. i.e. absolutely 0.

I recently had a scare on my data usage. 100GB went missing over 2 days which is totally abnormal behavior. My ISP cannot tell me where it went and, the useless router which they force me to use cannot provide anything more than a total count of bytes over a period of time. Great for knowing the obvious, that you ran out of data.

After googling a bit i found NEMS. I thought it would allow me a way to monitor my network for devices and usage plus give me the extra capability of monitoring ping to use when arguing with the ISP that my connection is slow:-) Fast forward a few days and, I am pleased to say, I got NEMS installed, Initialized, static IP assigned via router (outside my subnet) and its working perfectly. This is now where I am stuck. The technical jargon and the plethora of reports about the PI itself has me stumped. The documentation inst as comprehensive for a non-network person like myself which is why i am turning to you for help.

On my network i have the following; 1. Router (seems to be static IP), 2. NEMS (RPi and static IP), 3.....x various devices with dynamic IP's. Is it possible to monitor, with the purposed of reporting, the data usage of each of the device? I would like to, at the end of the month, draw a report to see how much data each used. Better yet would be the ability to view on the TV dashboard usage per device. Then there is the ping part. How do i go about showing the speed of the data line over time to have a meaningful argument with my ISP about not getting what i am paying for?

Thank you very much for your help.
