	I can assure you that MRTG returns correct information, so be
rassured, your manager has wrong on this ( do they have right sometimes ;-)
). There are zillions of people running MRTG with this 'basic' utilisation
(in/out traffic) and if the information wasn't exact, it would have been
discovered a long time ago...

	One source of misinterpretation is generally between graphs in
bytes/sec instead of our usual bits/sec (but your manager is not that
stupid, no ?).

	Anyway, it is always a good thing to check the results you have...

Hello All,

I am trying to get a better understanding of the variables that MRTG pulls
and how it creates the graph.  One of the managers is trying to say that the
information is wrong, so I am trying to build a case.  Also I would like to
double check my config.

What OID's does it poll by default?
