check data downloaded


I have a proxy server in my college and I use the Internet through this proxy server. Recently there has been put a limit on the data that we can download to 50Gb per month.

How can I determine the amount of data that I have downloaded so that I do not happen to cross this limit? Are there any commands or tools in Ubuntu?

The issue is to find the data downloaded not the data surfed.

maybe ifconfig will help:
Code:
[schneidz@hyper ~]$ ifconfig 
eth3      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 90:FB:A6:2A:5B:68  
          inet addr:192.168.1.25  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

just grab the total from if config as above and add it to a running total at the end of evry session/day.
If the uni has imposed the download limit they should mail you etc when you approach it surely?
