Im trying to build a report to discover how much of our T1 line (inbound and outbound) is being used for:

1. Total bandwidth per day - WAN to internal subnets, inbound + outbound
2. Total Bandwidth from 9AM - 5PM - WAN to internal subnets,  inbound + outbound

It appears that the bandwidth reports data that comes from Viewpoint includes activity between our internal networks.  I have created scheduled Bandwidth reports and have tried using the Configure Filters option:

Source Interface: WAN
Destination Interface: * (All)
Bidirectional is checked

I have run the report with bidirectional checked and unchecked and the reports come back with identical data.  The filter is being ignored.

I have also tried running the Internet Activity report, but again it includes internal traffic between internal subnets.  I have a web server and internal users and am trying to get a report to find out how much of our T1 is being used (inbound and outbound). How can I get the reports that will show for both 1 and 2 above?
