Data usage: how to get real numbers?

Overall, a nifty app. The area that falls short, imho, is data usage information. Having 24 hr and 30 day charts are nice but they do not show how much actual data (in MB/G is beeing used.


Ideally, I would appreciate:

  1. Data usage broken down into Send + Receive = Total
  2. Historical data usage in MB / GB for:
    1. Last hour (running)
    2. Today (calendar)
    3. Last X months (calendar)
      1. Grand total
      2. per Group
      3. per Device
  3. Real-time data usage in MB/s
    1. For a reasonable sampling time period (say 5 - 10 seconds) by
      1. Total
      2. per Group
      3. per Device

Getting some/most/all of the above information would be a great start Smiley Happy

Thank you for the consideration.
