Gmail Mib



we have gone to Gmail and i would like to see how much internet traffic Gmail is creating. So, is there a way i can go into traffic sniffer and create a MIB for Gmail? Or is there another/better method?

Thanks, Gary

mib packet-sniffer smtp-gmail-com

the only way to do this properly seems to be indeed with either Packet Sniffing or flow sensors and then filtering for the destination IPs for smtp.gmail.com.

best regards.
