Monitoring NIC bandwidth on multiple RHEL systems

Does anyone know of a program that uses SSH to pull NIC bandwidth usage from multiple remote hosts?

I've got a 5 nessus scanners that are load balanced with Tenable Security Center, but each has slightly different hardware and capacity so I want to monitor them all.

Currently I use iftop to monitor each box, but it gets to be visually overwhelming with five constantly changing SSH sessions running on my desktop...

yess mrtg is good,but no need to install mrtg on each hosts, snmp is the most reliable protocol to monitor the remote hosts
