Get rid of the option gauge line. You are telling MRTG to behave just
as you specify.

You say: This is not a counter but rather a value (like temperature)
and it can not exceed 15000.

You want: This is not a value but a counter (number of dhcp requests
received so far) and the increase can not exceed 15000.
