i think I can get good information from the /proc/net/nf_conntrack file.

However, I notice that the nf_conntrack file only has IPs but but webmon_recent_domains file has resolved DNS names. How do you get those domains resolved from IPs? If I just have IPs it wont mean as much as with domains.

webmon pulls the domains from the webpackets themselves.

Yes the device is supported.
No, as previously discussed in this thread, it does not measure how much data has been used on each website.

It can indicate which websites have been visited, and how much traffic has been used.
It does not correlate the two together.

I have a script solution in place that dumps nf_conntrack and then calls nslookup for each of the IPs to get domain name. Not perfect but is generally good enough to spot over usage of Netflix.
