Well not a full config - but here's a typical 56k line, looking at DLCI 100 on port 3 :

MRTG is reading octets from the device (Since that's what the mib supports) so I am using the 'bits' option to multiply these values by 8 to convert to bits. Maxbytes is set to 7000, not 56000 because we're getting values in in Octets (56/8=7). The multiplication is done -after- the conversions - so that's why I had to put it in as 7000.

It works pretty good on our routers, hope it works for you.
