I tried to setup iptables for accounting but It doesn't start on my
master vserver:

# iptables -A FORWARD -s
iptables v1.2.11: can't initialize iptables table `filter': iptables
who? (do you need to insmod?)
Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.

I think it's kernel issue, maybe bad configured, but I remember using
the default make menuconfig configuration.

I'll first try to fix this then I'll try to feed the iptable accounting
result into snmp.

I am using IPFM to monitor traffic per IP address.

I haven't gotten around to writing a plugin for net-snmp to use that
data to
be able to report through SNMP though.. been thinking about how to do it
my (rare) spare time... :) "just" doing it is not that hard but I'd like
integrate it into the rest of the interfaces. *hmm, idea about how*

I'll unfortunately be pretty busy for the next few weeks ...
