If most of your traffic is below 3Mbytes you could have MaxBytes set to
3Mbytes and AbsMax set to 12Mbytes.

Also use the Unscaled option for dwmy which will not let your graphs go
below the MaxBytes value, 3Mbytes in your case.

The only downfall with this is that you will get a red line at the MaxBytes
value, but on the up side, any value grater than 3Mbytes will rescale your
graphs up to that value.
