Ntop and iptraf will do what you want. I use them all the time.

There are some limitations associated with using software solutions. You can only gather what is collected in device MIB's. This limits detail. The frequency of collection impacts device performance. Trend analysis is determined by the volume of raw data collected so the database structure can be a limiting factor.

You may want to consider using a hardware probe. I have had success with one doing detailed traffic analysis and trending, and validating carrier performance, at ciruits up to frac T3 over time periods measured in months.
