Option: gauge is what you are thinking of. The manual states: "In the
absence of gauge...MRTG treats variable as a counter and calculates the
difference between the current and the previous value and divides that by
the elapsed time between the last two readings to get the value to be
When I'm trying to perform the test on something like packets / sec, the
rmon uses a counter, correct? If so I need the difference between the
counters. MRTG will return the actual value if I use gauge, right? If my
assumption is incorrect, won't gauge just give me the value @ the 5 minute

There should also be a switch to turn off the averaging.. I want real
for every poll. As far as I know, the number is averaged over 5 minutes.
gauge and absolute options don't quite do it. If one poll return 128000 and
next poll returns 100, I want to see that in the graph.
