Looking at the 24hour table. What is considered Bandwidth Traffic In? Is that into the LAN or into the carrier circuit?

this depends on the point of view.

If you are monitoring the WAN port of your firewall, the traffic going out the wan port is the traffic going to the internet end the traffic going into the WAN port is the one gong to your LAN.

When you look at the LAN port it is the other way around.
