How to get a quick view of Bandwidth Rx/Tx on a DSL ATM interface

I have noticed that when I look at the ATM interface that I get reports that indicate that the RX is working at 100% 

MTU 4470 bytes, sub MTU 4470, BW 1022 Kbit/sec, DLY 360 usec

reliability 255/255, txload 11/255, rxload 255/255

However it seems that it is making this assumption based on the interface assuming the bandwidth is the same both directions and that it assumes the upload speed ( the slower of the two ) is that bandwidth.

DS Channel1 DS Channel0 US Channel1 US Channel0
Speed (kbps): 0   20828    0    1022

So in this instance the download speed is 20mb and the upload is 1mb.

When the Rx displays 255/255 it really only means that more than 1mb is being downloaded (Rx)

Is there any reliable way of getting a quick look at how much the Rx is loaded on a dsl interface without using external monitoring software. I was quite surprised that Cisco does not have a way of doing this as pretty much everything is dsl now. Seems a big over look for something they could easily sort out with a little coding.

Or is there something I have missed here, is there a method of seeing what the load is each direction on dsl from the command line?
