[mrtg] Calculate the link traffic

Hi everybody !!!

I've instaleed the MRTG on a PC/WNT Server 4.0 platform and I monitor two
network links (routers).
But I have a doubt now: for example if a get an HTML output of a serial card
(NIC) of a router, behind the graphic I have the following data:

Max In: 7852 B/s (4.1 %)

Max Out: 7808 B/s (4.0 %)

If I want to calculate the maximun traffic of the link in order to compare
to the rented bandwidth (in my case 64 Kbps), I ask you: Do I have to add
the both values and then apply the formula * 8 bits / 1024 in order to
obtain the result in Kbps or do I have to just take the Max In or Max Out
value ????

Thanks a lot !!!!
