The point is, we are discussing bandwidth not CPU. The two things
aren't necessarily correlated. For example, LittleItaly slurps easily
tens of minutes of CPU a day and it would slurp even more if it wasn't
competing with other programs.

Now to the problem: I think that the solution is usins some sort of
inetd monitoring tool that counts the number of packets/bytes entering
and exiting one particolar port of an IP address. This is a typical
root administration tool whose name and manner of operation depend 
highly on your HW and OS. Ask your friendly sysadm, and he will surely
know how to do it. Sysadms live for this kind of stuff :)
