If I add ifInErrors and ifOutErrors, I am getting into a problem since my 
group wants that information included in the same graph as the bandwidth 
utilization. The addition of in and out errors results in terms of packets. 
How do I convert that into octets if I want to represent it in the same 
graph. Waht do I need to do to calculate the error rate percentage? Can I 
divide that by ifSpeed?
