Greetings Andy,

lets say you have this config:

{ISP}s0 -----------s0 [ your router ]e0------> your clients/MRTG

If you monitor your routers serial interface " s0 " the green lines 
will represent " INCOMING " data. This means data that cam from( or 
through ) your ISP to your routers interface

The blue Lines would represent " OUTGOING " data. This is the data 
that came from your s0 to your ISP.

Now if you monitor e0:

same thing,..green is the "INCOMING" data. that means,..data from 
your clients to the routers Ethernet interface.
Blue is the "OUTGOING".

--- man it's early for me,..I haven't had enough coffee,..I hope I 
explained that right :)
