    It means: "Considering everything we (I) have discussed, here are my conclusions."

    In summation...
    All told...
    In conclusion...

    As for when do we use it....

    "Even though we arrived late for the game, and had trouble finding a parking space, the Oakland Raiders won, and the stadium was giving out free beer. All in all, I'd say it was a great afternoon."

    Another expression with the same meaning..."On the whole" or "All things considered."

    "On the whole, I'd rather be in Philadelphia." - W.C. Fields' suggestion for his epitaph.
