How do I view my Linux or UNIX server bandwidth usage?

I have two Linux servers in a remote data center for gaming and personal usage purpose. How do I see my current bandwidth usage for both of my servers using command line?

A Linux or UNIX server can use MRTG graphs to display bandwidth usage. MRTG (Multi Router Traffic Grapher) is a free software for monitoring the traffic load on network links. It allows the user to see traffic load on a network over time in graphical form. See how to setup and use MRTG for more info:
