Arbour Peakflow is probably the way to go. 

However if you don't want to spend a ton of money, you might
want to consider using a stub router +bgp coupled with a server 
running the appropriate SNMP tools (perhaps cacti) to publish your desired data.

It's not the most convenient solution but it should do..
