Actually, the typical bandwidth statement in teh communications/service
provider world is in bits.
so a 64k line is really 64 * 1024 bits, or 65536 bits ber second
max rate. Then 65536 / 8 = 8192 Bytes per second, or 8KBytes.
So the MaxBytes value should equal 8192.
Then MRTG, as long as you are not using the nopercent Option, will
automagically give you the percentage of utilization.
