I want to be able to see information like how much traffic an ip send
over a period of time, what machines it talked to etc from this
perspective it should be IP based but I would really like to know how
other people do it.

Wouldn't Wireshark provide this for you?  In particular, the "Conversations" 
tool under the "Statistics" drop down menu?  It adds data to the tool in 
real time.  If you want a graphical output the I/O graphs also under the
"Statistics" menu can graph all, or slices of the data in the main 
Wireshark output.
