[mrtg] guage, and Y label

	I just setup MRTG to monitor Sendmail msgsfrm and msgsto. 
I'm curious, is this a place I would us guage?  I know I use it for 
things like my disk usage graphs but would I use it here?  I'm 
parsing the output of 'mailstats /var/log/sendmail.st' for the 
current value every 5 minutes.  I'm preforming no math on it, just 
returning raw values.
	I'm also have a problem with the an almost identical graph 
monitoring bytes_to and bytes_from.  I'm using a the same script, 
except for an altered awk pattern.  Its returing the values in 
kilobytes, which is what mailstats uses:

Statistics from Thu Dec  9 10:20:05 1999
  M   msgsfr  bytes_from   msgsto    bytes_to  msgsrej msgsdis  Mailer
  5   280269    6280393K    98951    5455877K       60       0  esmtp
  8    77647    4978371K   314566    7804808K      321       0  local
  T   357916   11258764K   413517   13260685K      381       0

The text below my graphs are fine.  What I'm having trouble with is 
Y.  I have a peak of 9379.0 kilobytes.  On the lefthand side is lists 
the peak at 9.6k (I know it rounds to make it prettier).  How can I 
make it say 9.6M or 9379K instead?  That's the only real problem I'm 
having right now, other than the question above.  Anyone have any 
ideas?  TIA
