I am trying to set up a monitoring capability on my children’s and nephew (computer wiz who is visiting for the summer) internet connection. I need it to do two basic things at minimum,

a) Monitor net data usage per user/device/unit of time (e.g. User A/Device 2 downloaded 500MB and uploaded 250MB of data today)
b) Monitor and log all network traffic per user/device (e.g. a report of every packet of information requested and sent by any given user on a day, including source and destination IPs, protocol, etc).

Which router option out there do you recommend that would allow me to accomplish these two? (the smaller the better) If so, would it be a capability that comes with the router or would I need to purchase/download/subscribe to an additional layer of functionality.

Any guidance on which would be the best product will be much appreciated!
