Maybe this is slightly off topic, but it might be very useful to know the
bandwidth usage of a single node, or even better if this bandwidth is split
among topics/services (advanced feature?). This could be done e.g. by
inserting a proxy node between the sender and the receiver, but other ways
are possible.
