Someone once posted to the list a file calculate_traffic.pl.  It will
calculate the number of bits to pass any interface when given to reference

I don't remember who wrote it, but you can find it at
http://www.sugarat.net.  It's towards the bottom.

I can't think of a way to graph it offhand that would be easy.
