This article explains why the NTA charts show high bandwidth utilization when selecting a short time frame but show a much lower value when selecting a larger time frame.

The chart appearance is affected by the number of data points that can fit on the chart. Shorter time frames have less data points and each data point can be displayed on the chart while larger time frames only show averages values for each data point.
