Generator load balancing/measurmwnt

Hi! I've seen many guys ask this question on many different forms. The Actual answer they ask never seems to be answered. All of the responses rabbit-hole off in many directions.
THIS IS THE SCENARIO:
A generator is connected to the home properly through rated cabling, interlock, etc.
THIS IS THE QUESTION:
I need to meaure the TOTAL ACTIVE LOAD. (Amps not watts) being drawn from the genset. I need to know how much the A bus and B bus are drawing IN TOTAL (because the A and B bus will be different.
I want to do this with a SINGLE meter which will be permanently installed. Is it possible?
Or must I use 2 meters, 1 per leg?
I fully understand all the electrical principles (except this one, hehehe)

Know the answer or have a comment? Post it here!
