[mrtg] Monitoring virtual domains' bandwidth on a Linux box

Okay, here's a bonehead question, so please forgive my ignorance. I am
currently measuring the amount of traffic being used by several virtual
domains on a Linux server by capturing the SNMP data from off their port
on a Cisco 2924 switch into which that Linux machine connects. I know
that Linux has the ability to do SNMP as well. 
So here's my question, is it possible to break down the traffic use by
IP coming off that single Linux machine? Can I see how much traffic is
going out for each individual virtual domain or each unique IP address.
And if so, does someone has a FAQ out there for setting that up and
using MRTG with it. Or is this all a pipe-dream and should I be content
to simply watch the cumulative traffic coming out of the one box, rather
than trying to break it down by IP addresses.
The last time I tried to set up SNMP on my Red Hat Linux box, I failed
