Network Traffic/ Internet Monitoring Software

Hi, Im looking for software I can use to monitor network traffic. I am hoping for something that I can install on an old PC hide away in a corner and check data from a web interface. I have googled this and I found a lot of different programs but most of them have key logging features, which is something I definitely don't want. All I want is to know how much bandwidth each user is eating up with no particular information about what they'e doing. If such a beast exists could you please give me a link to download. Thanx in advance.

I looked around and found out what snort, ntop, iptraf, mrtg were, They would do the trick, but I need something which takes all the data they put out and displays it in a nice set of graphs that anyone with permission can look at without my help.
