I think what you are seeing is a flaw in the Check Point FW-1 snmp daemon.
Although the value is supposed to be ifInOctets and ifOutOctets, it probably
should be labeled ifInPackets and ifOutPackets. If you plot the OIDs
. (packets accepted), .
(packets rejected), and . (packets dropped), you'll
probably find the values follow along quite closely.

With MRTG-2.8.8, I'm monitoring traffic on 2 ethernet interfaces which
are directly connected :
(1 cisco router <-> Sun Solaris with CheckPoint fw-1)

Max Speed:    240.0 kBytes/s (ethernetCsmacd)
Max  In:      1847.4 kb/s (96.2%)

How can you explain this difference in the number of bits on the
same link ????
