The most obvious method is to do a 'show interface ser 0/0' on your 2610 router, or whichever interface your T-1 is attached to. This will show the current 5 minute average loading on the interface. You can also change the load-interval to something less than the 5 minute average by specifying a different value in the interface configuration on the router.
Concerning the ability to categorize the traffic, we use Packeteer, an in-line device that provides traffic-shaping so that you can assign a priority to traffic, like web-radio. We got clobbered on our ISP links on 9/11 with everyone listening to live radio from the Web, and had to modify our traffic-shaping parameters so as to be able to do normal business.
This is one solution, not the least expensive, but among the easiest to configure and manage.
One of the ways that we monitor bandwidth on some of our routers and switches is using MRTG. This is a free tool that uses SNMP to query the devices and dynamically created HTML pages. It is a pretty cool tool and IMHO, really easy to use.
Your interest of monitoring the BW which is possible using the high end product like HP Openview, Tivoli,etc. Other inexpensive solution is to have management system with graphical engine. MRTG, Router PM, SmartManage from HCL Comnet, etc. are the product may suit your need.
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
