Being part of the Association of Evil Bandwidtch Calculating ISPs I
wrote a couple of completely cryptic scripts to poll the routers and
get ifInOctets and ifOutOctets for each interface.  The logs from
those polls get analyzed and summaries are reported for any interface
in question.  You might do well to write something similar.  I'll be
as helpful as I can without giving you the code that is technically
owned by the company I work for.
