If you can pull SNMP stats from the ethernet cards on the Co-located
boxes you can use mrtg to give you bytes in/out and just reset the
counters each month.

If you have a network switch with some intelligence you could set
mrtg up to pull the snmp stats from each switch port you plug the
idividual servers into? If the switch is on a ups it will keep totals
for you even if the servers get rebooted or drop with power surges.
