You could write your own hooks into SNMP with Net::SNMP and

Pretty graphs can be generated with MRTG, Cricket, Cacti, or your own
graphing routines (I like GD::Graph).

Ntop (http://www.ntop.org/) is useful for a moderate level of traffic
analysis. It does some simple bandwidth monitoring, but that isn't hard
to do with other scripts as well.
