Bandwidth control


Is there an easy way (or program) to know my daily bandwidth ?
I am on a network where I am fined if I download more that 500Mo so I would like to be able to check from time to time if I have enough bandwidth left to download some files without getting fined...

Or just search in freshmeat or
