Ok, I'm merely a lowly tech support guy, but I have been using mrtg to monitor our network.  My supervisor uses a commercial product called cybergage.  My question is about the way bandwith is utilized.  Mrtg of course plots the in and out traffic separately.  My super is using his product, but chooses to graph as the total of in and out.  My understanding of of bandwith in a frame relay environment was that it was full/duplex, and that adding the in/out traffic does not give you total circuit utilization.  Is this correct?  Is one way of monitoring better than the other?  At what percentages should sites considering upping their circuit?

Thanks for the info,
