User bandwidth monitoring


I need a way to monitor the amount of bandwidth a user uses on my Linux server. I don't need anything fancy here. A command line utility/shell script would be great. I was thinking that I could parse some information from /proc/sys/net but I'm not sure what to look for exactly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
