I have a Cisco 2811 router and I need to know how to get IP statistics off of an interface. It's my Internet router and one of my T1's is being over loaded and I need to see which one.

Thanks in advance for the help!

'show int' will list all the interfaces and give you details about them.  there is a txload and rxload in there that you can check out.

Thank you for the help!

silly question??? How can I translate this:
txload 16/255, rxload 199/255
Top Expert 2005

255 is the range of the load (100%).  so 199/255 would be about 78% and 16/255 would be about 6%.
Top Expert 2005

txload - transmit (outgoing)
rxload - receive (incoming)

these are all relative to the interface.  if its an outside interface like a serial port, then outgoing and incoming are just like they are stated.  if you are looking at a fastethernet interface connected to your network, then its reversed from the serial.  basically, those are traffic numbers as the interface sees them.  incoming is traffic going into the router through that interface.
