[olug] Home bandwidth monitoring

I'm looking to setup a home network bandwidth monitoring system at home and
wanted to see what others might have done.

Optimally I want to see on a per-device level so I can track down
unexpected usage, but even tracking on a per-destination (YouTube, Netflix,
Amazon Video) and/or per protocol (http/https, BitTorrent, IRC) would be

If I can get by with using a RPi with a network TAP I'd go that route, but
I'm also open to reflashing my TP-Link Archer C9 router (nice one BTW) with
something else if that helps.

Anyone gone down this route recently?
