Graphing download/upload usage?

Hi there,
Can anyone suggest a method to graph the total amount of downloads and uploads running through a hotspot which can be viewed the graph system of ROS?

Ideally it would be good to see month by month total usage.

Thanks

Re: QoS for hotspot - Can it be done, whilst keeping all rul

Instead of rate limiting to 5/2 in the example, set max-limits that are very high (e.g. 100mbps) and don't use the PCQ piece.
But won't this have an effect across all clients and AP's?
My clients are based on 10.5.50.X; whereas the AP is based on 192.168.1.X.
