How to monitor send/receive bytes

Hello,
I need to create a script to monitor sent/received packets for a period of time (the period of time will be a users input) and write the result to some txt file.
Is there any command (don`t want to use any 3rd party sw) what I can use?
I`m using Solaris 10.

Thank you

Try reading the snoop man page:
Code:
man snoop

Come up with suggested parameters and test them out on your system. You will quickly find the correct parameters to use.

snoop is not the right command...need something what shows network traffic.Like in XP Activity...total of sent and received packets..Is there something like that?

I found netsat -s. It gives me some info. There is "tcpOutDataBytes"..is it the amount of sent bytes?And also there is "tcpInDupBytes" I assume it is not the amount of received bytes.
