[rrd-users] Getting a different 'average'

Hi peeps.
We've got RRDTool grabbing SNMP data from our Netscreen appliance to plot
bandwidth utilisation for the Internet, and everything is working fine.
Is there anyway I can print a value that will give me the average bandwidth
used? ie....
I've written a Perl script that creates a graph from the database for a
defined number of days. Using the information gathered, I'd like to know on
average how much bandwidth we use during the day (say, between 8am and 6pm)
for reporting purposes.
Relatively straightforward requirement I guess, but I haven't found a way to
do it after going through the documentation. If it isn't possible, can I get
my Perl script to read the values being used to generate the graph, tot them
up and use that in a sum to do a 'brute force' calculation (ie do the sum
and pipe the answer to a text file or similar)? I hope that makes sense.
Thanks in advance!
