If you are using MRTG/RRD with Routers2, then you get this calculation
automatically, just enable 'percentile=yes' in the routers2.conf (the
default setting) and you'll get 95th Percentile calculations plus Total
Usage calculations, over whatever period (day, week, month, year) you are

Alternatively I believe there are some other 3rd party scripts available in
the contrib. directory that can do this for plain MRTG
