Truth is that most people probably don't do it, beyond temporary, ad-hoc deployments, to solve a specific problem at a specific point in time. Traffic capture and analysis doesn't scale too well into multi-Gb/s service provider environments.

Netflow tools are an option if 'reasonably accurate' is good enough for your needs.
