Using vnstat (en)
From Conky PitStop

After installing vnstat you have to create a database for it to work from:
sudo vnstat -u -i eth0
(change eth0 for your network interface)
First time you run it you’ll see:
~$ sudo vnstat -u -i eth0 Error: Unable to read database "/var/lib/vnstat/eth0". A new database has been created. ~$
The code that produced the image above: vnstat-code.txt.tar.gz
Update: 20 Sept 10
short_units yes pad_percents 2 TEXT
to line up the decimals with vnstat doesn't work.
Maybe, someday, someone can do something about this.
