Thanks for the response Neil!

The data seems to be inacurate, the only variance is at the tail end of a
trace, not a clean drop, a stagered drop.

BTW, these are Cicso 2524's, all with frame, some T1 and some 56k.

I guess what I'd be asking is, is the data correct? You say 'little or
no variance'. If they were all identical then that may be a problem. But
small differences means things are probably ok.

Do you have any way of querying these devices besides MRTG to verify
that you are getting good or bad data? Try using a different package to
browse your device mibs to see what the device is saying. (On linux, you
should be able to run 'snmpwalk' from the command line to peer at
different OIDs. If you prefer a GUI, one that many of us use is GetIf :
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Hills/8260/)  If the numbers are
out of whack with what MRTG is reporting, then start looking at your
configs. Otherwise, you probably just have fairly steady data flows.
