We provide our business customers that have routers on ADSL circuits a
bandwidth graph on our page and if they really pump a lot of data through
the circuit it seems to slow down the response times enough that mrtg
reports the following message through the crontab.  I want to know if there
is a way to increase the wait time when it polls.  I could stop the e-mails
from coming through but we find this is also helpfull to let us know if a
customers circuit has dropped, so totally eliminating the e-mail is not our
desired route.
