I don't know anything about the NT script or what it does, but the same OID
twice is rarely (but occasionally) the Right Thing To Do.

Its effect will be to graph the same data as both the (typically) green and
blue graphs.

The steady 16% (or any other number) suggest you are not reporting what you
think you are.  (Personal opinion is that nothing to do with "traffic" is
ever steady-state.)
