You're not making sense.  This confuses me and I think it even confuses

First you say the customer is the only one producing traffic.  I respond
that in such a case it is perfectly OK to show 100% usage.

*Then* you come up with *other* traffic.

I cannot tell you how to do it if I don't know what you're trying to do.
Obviously you don't want to calculate a 1:14000 ratio (1k out of 14M)
because you rejected this ratio.

If you try to say you want to monitor the amount of bytes sent then do a
search on the archived list content.  It has been discussed many times.

While you're there, do read the archive.  There's plenty of usefull info
not only from me but also from others. Not only covering this subject but
also many other subjects you want to know.
