there's a script around somewhere called "calculate_traffic.pl".
It takes a begining date and an ending date, and tells you how much
traffic passed in that time period, and you can do the math with your CIR
or allowed rate, and see what percentile you are in for the month.

I lost the script though.  Somebody here ought to have it.
