Personally, I'm using ifmonitor and I don't have any issues with lagging
anyone. It checks the NIC once in a minute and writes the values into a
mysql database.

The data seems not to be perfectly correct (especially when wget'ting some
big files), but it gives you a general overview about your bandwith usage.
