A conscientious network user would install a sniffer to measure how much of the
network traffic they were responsible for. Of course you'd need more than one
to get a fully representative picture of the network usage.
If ever given out to you can then point out that your ssh usage is
and uses miniscule bandwidth compared to that of the CIO trading MP3s and the
MD surfing for "dinner companions" for his next business trip.
