Calculating protocol bandwidth usage


I'm trying to create a script that will find the bandwidth usage of certain protocols only. For example, SMTP. I would like it to just return a number. Is there a known command/parameters to output something like this?

Not sure about a command that you can use, but I think iptraf should be of some help. I have heard of ntop also. But I never used it.
