Some of the the plugins for things like sysutils/gkrellm(2) do things like traffic graphs but you really dont want them on a firewall. If you dont need absolute realtime then just enable bsnmp on the internal interface and run something like mrtg or cacti (or even a very quick and dirty script using rrdtool via cron) against it.
