Tool or script to measure bandwdith

MRTG outputs the value in premade HTML file, is there another tool available to measure bandwidth (how much traffic is being used mbit/s) but outputs the data to a file?

You could do this once per second:

/sbin/ifconfig eth0
and output the results to a file, and munge the file.
