you can try Ethereal.
It's a GNU licence, it supports a huge number of protocols, it installs in a number of platforms, and its been working fine for us (we've been using it for some time now).

You can try:
flowd and softflowd - see port net-mgmt/flowd and net-mgmt/softflowd
you can try
pmacct and pmacct-fe - see port net-mgmt/pmacct
