Same here.  I bill my customers on 95% percentile.  I use Advent's
Manageengine Netflow Analyzer

I have had good success with Netflow data to solve this, and if you
don't mind spending a little money, Scrutinizer is a good tool to use.

Cacti and MRTG both have support for rrdtool backends. How the rrd is
processed 
is up to you. A simple script to poll data and do some basic math and
email the 
results, or generate a graph. Cacti has several plugins for sending
reports. 
MRTG users tend to just script additionals. It's not as gui oriented as
cacti, IMO.

Each has pros and cons. If you have a sound internal php/mysql setup,
cacti is a 
breeze and the plugin php scripts are cute for the non-techies.
