    Your port is full duplex, meaning you have 10Mbps in each direction.

    It could be a full duplex port. Meaning the connection can both send and receive at the same time, which in turn makes the connection run at 10 mbps in and 10 mbps out

    edit: Too slow for me. cynix and I posted at the same time.

    Keep in mind that this traffic isn't always concurrent. For example:
    Just because you have max IN at 9.5 and max OUT at 5, doesn't mean you've hit both at the same time.
    From the bandwidth calculator, you're pulling just over 10 (10.84 to be precise) in the image there, so it's possible that you're duplexed, or it's also possible that this is just a glitch in your graphing software, depending on how often it's updated, the last is most likely . Most (like mrtg, etc) update every 10-15 minutes and will keep a bit of data stored.
