That is correct, but from what I understood from their tech sales, you
can't have TopTalkers and Top Listeners on *all* the bandwidth, but only
on a per policy filter (i.e. if a pipe is defined for all port 80 you will
see all the top www'ers but you won't see the top ftp'ers or the top GREs
as well).
