You can use check_snmp - either against the local interface, or more
likely against a nearby switch or router that is a potential bottleneck.

I guess you might be able to stop/start service and host checks by
parent/child relationships and service dependencies. You will probably
need to change some normal host_check_alive commands to the snmp
bandwidth check, but if the SNMP implentation is reliable, that should
be OK.
