Solar radiation totals

I'm new to the weather station world and have a Davis Vantage Pro Plus 2 with Weatherlink
What is the best way to track monthly total solar radiation?

Total Solar Energy, which WL computes for you on a daily basis in NOAA reports IIRC. Admittedly it's in some odd units like Langleys, but easy enough to convert to something more meaningful like MJ/sqm.
