I am not sure if this fits your needs, but I usually fire up iftop
inside a screen session and leave it running all the time.  It gives me
a nice general cumulative total of up/down traffic and also gives me a
current snapshot (e.g., I run it on my network's router so I can see
which device might be monopolizing the connection).
