bandwidth consumption

I got some data from wireshark for the conversation between the client (B) and the server (A) and I am trying to do some analysis as far as the bandwidth consumption is concerned.

The WAN link on the client side is a T1 and the link on the server side is 3MB. I have Wireshark captured on both ends.

Here it goes...
This is the data from the statistic->conversation in Wireshark on the server side (3MB link). I got the A->B as 200,000 bps (0.19073 Mbps)  and B->A as 50,000bps.

Questions:
- Is it valid to say that the traffic from A->B (outbound of the gateway) takes 7% (which is (3/0.19073)*100) of the 3MB?
- Is it valid to say that the traffic from B->A (inbound of the gateway) takes 1.7% of the 3MB?

Your 7% and 1.7% are close for the 3Mb/s circuit but your equation is wrong.
It should be (used/available)*100%
(0.19073/3)*100 = 6.36%
(.05/3)*100 = 1.67%

yes. I flipped it around.
So it is valid to say that the rate for the bandwith from A to B for that specific application is 0.19073 Mbps which is 6.36% of the 3MB bandwidth at the gateway. Correct?
