Hi all, sorry for these dumb questions but here goes.. dont shoot me now..

First i need help in *understanding* the mrtg graph that was provided by an ISP. it's located at,now my questions are: 

1.se0 refers to the serial interface right? meaning, the traffic from my router going to my isp's router...? 

2. whats the difference between peak inbound traffic and inbound traffic?, why are they overlapping? 

3. should incoming traffic be always greater than outgoing traffic? assuming browsing is only being done. 

4. what does the horizontal numbers indicate..time right? hours? what does it all mean? 

5. should there be activity in mrtg se0 if there are no browsing,downloading, etc on the workstation connected? 

this graph is based on a "trial" demo from this isp and they promised us a 64kbps CIR wireless solution and basically, i wanted to see in mrtg if indeed we are getting that 64kbps link (or are we getting screwed?). pls help me in deciphering/reading the graph so I can make my recommendations. 

thanks... duh
