What's probably happened is that the switch is reporting that value when you
changed to full duplex. Normally, 12.5Mbytes/sec (100 Mbits) is standard
fast ethernet. The switch has a little more intelligence and is reporting
200000000 for ifSpeed when set to full duplex. Your server simply doesn't
change its speed rating in the ifSpeed OID. It really doesn't matter
because MRTG will still pull the same number of bytes in and bytes out of
the interfaces. In fact, when the server changes to 200 Mbits, just
remember that if the link is utilized to 50% one way, you've topped out its
capability in one direction and that is actuallly 100% in one direction.
