I have just received a few mails regarding the post I just made, so maybe
I'm wrong in what I say but this is what I believe is the difference between
Gauge and Absolute is.

MRTG will log the actual value returned.

MRTG will take the actual value returned and divide it by the polling gap
(default 300 seconds)

Default ('gauge' or 'absolute' option not used):
MRTG will minus the previous value from the new value and divide the answer
by the polling gap.
