It would be very helpful for me if I could monitor total bandwidth usage on a monthly basis.  Does anyone know if anywork has been done in this area?

You are storing bytes/second.  When you multiply with second, you end
up with bytes.

If you define a graph to have a X-axis of exacly one month, the average
bandwidth is displayed.  Multiply this with the number of seconds in
that month and you end up with (an approximation of) the number of bytes
transfered in that month.

I don't think you can actually graph it or print it from within MRTG
but it shouldn't be to hard to do this with some script that reads the
HTML page.
