How to swap In and Out channels



When i monitor traffic on router's local interfaces, charts are generated the other way around. So 'In Traffic' is shown as 'Out' and vice versa. Perfectly normal (as the sensor sees the interfaces), but I prefer to see it swapped, so i have a nice overview on how much uploading or downloading has been going on on given interface. I can easily change the Channel Names and Colors, as long as i use the Independent Chart type. But when I switch to "positive and negative area chart" type, the actual In's are always up and Out's are bottom. So for me, it's wrong again, since i have changed the channel names around.. Is there any way to customise this chart type, so i can get my 'In' channel on top and 'Out' to the bottom? Or is there some other setting for swapping channels, which i have missed?

at the moment there is no setting or switch that would let you do the change you are looking for, sorry.
