Hi list,

we are running mrtg 2.9.7 on a SuSE 7.0 box, metering traffic for our
webservers (all SuSE 6.4, 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2).
After buying snmp-capable switches, we configured mrtg tp poll the switches
an not the nics anymore. For one week we metered both the switches and the

Now comes the strange part. On a few boxes the traffic of the switch port is
reported to be higher than on the corresponding nic. Rates go up to 20% more
traffic. I got absolutely no clue what went wrong.

Does anybody know what's going on ?
