Most of my WAN circuits are full-duplex Fractional T-3, T-1, and Frame Relay
circuits.  I have used MaxBytes to define the CIR and used AbsMax to define
either the EIR or full capacity of the circuit.

There is one drawback to this technique in that the utilization percentages
are based on MaxBytes.  Not much of a problem if you only occassionally
exceed your CIR.  But if you are constantly over the CIR value viewers are
confused by the utilization always being in excess of 100%.
