Check the logs produced by those packages; you'll find that they typically
include byte counts. You just have to write some scripts to parse them out
of the logs, and differentiate between the different customers.
For example, with Apache, you can make it easier by creating separate
access logs for each virtual host. Then you just run through and add up
the byte counts in each log file, et voilà!

That's a little harder. You can count that kind of thing too, but doing it
in a way that you can correlate to the logs to determine which virtual host
it was for is a bit harder.
