[mrtg] Two Questions (scale and archives)

	I was wondering if it is possible to set the max height on your graphs and 
have all the graphs use that same scale.  That is, rather, is there a way to 
stop MRTG from scaling your graph's height to the largest value it's seen in 
a certain time period?  I ask because I have a client who would like to 
quickly be able to scan all the graphs for his switch and know that the most 
green/blue is the interface he should be concerned with.
	Secondly, this same client wants to save the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly 
graphs for each day in a sort of archive.  I know that he should probably 
just look at RRDTool, but he doesn't want to switch at this time.  So, I was 
just going to write a perl script to copy these directories to an /archive 
directory and append the date or something.  Has anyone else done this?  Is 
it a poor idea?  Is there a ratio for the amount of disk space needed per 

Thanks much,
