Need Cisco Rate Limit help and Observium Help

I've been using Observium for a while and there seems to be some discrepancies between my graphs and the upstream (my data center provides me Ethernet GigE bandwidth). For example, from around 8am to 12pm today it showed overall utilization pretty consistent well above 400Mbps.

I have two drops from them: primary and secondary (redundant). Plus, they both show active instead of active/passive. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

These switches are actually trunked (2 x 3650 L3 switches). In the graph, it also shows the uplink connectivity calculated with the total utilization (VLAN2155). This is definitely not accurate as it shouldn't do that.

Drop #1 =  40Mbps
Drop #2 =  200Mbps
Uplink to Switch #2 = 130Mbps

Now as a result VLAN2155 (total utilization) is calculating not only #1 and #2 drops from the upstream, but even the trunk port labeled "Uplink to Switch #2".
How can I rectify this with Observium to avoid that and get an accurate output?

How do I add the 2nd switch as a device so it’s interfaces show up too? Right now, only the primary switches’ interfaces are there
