Hey all... I need a hand..     (stop clapping)
I am trying to calculate bandwidth utilization on a half-duplex gigE link.
I've got 36 hours worth of InOctet and OutOctet collected every 60 seconds.  (via snmpget... .
I've taken the change in "in" and "out" and added them together and then I multiplied it by 800.... 
then I divided by 60,000,000,000
I am getting percentages anywhere from 5% to 2000%...
I don't believe it's possible to get a 2000% utilization is it? :)
Is this still the correct formula for GigE?   If so, how can I be getting > 100% utilization? 
Please help, I really appreciate any input.
