Thanks for the response.... I tried using AbsMax and ... well got
confused :-)

Here's the config for one of the ports, for example:

Target[x.shellnet.co.uk.5]: 5:public at x.shellnet.co.uk
MaxBytes[x.shellnet.co.uk.5]: 12500000 
AbsMax[x.shellnet.co.uk.5]: 1000     
Options[x.shellnet.co.uk.5]: bits
Title[x.shellnet.co.uk.5]: x.shellnet.co.uk (): FastEthernet0/4
PageTop[x.shellnet.co.uk.5]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for FastEthernet0/4
   <TR><TD>System:</TD><TD>x.shellnet.co.uk in Machine Room</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Maintainer:</TD><TD>Gary Forrest</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Interface:</TD><TD>FastEthernet0/4 (5)</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>IP:</TD><TD> ()</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Max Speed:</TD>
       <TD>12.5 MBytes/s (ethernetCsmacd)</TD></TR>

I just pumped a lot of data through the machine, to bring it up to about
14Mbit/s.... with AbsMax set in there to 1000Bytes/s... but the graphs
are still being created and showing the spike.

Have I done something wrong? (I'm using 2.7.1, if that's any help).
