The Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTG) is a tool to monitor the traffic load on network links. It does it natively. I don't know why it does not this out-of-the-box but here is a guide for redhat, it should work for you

It makes them out-of-the-box, it's the only thing it makes by design. The rest (cpu, ram, etc) are modifications on the original.
The question is: how did you manage to have bandwidth not reported? I really can't understand..
