[mrtg] .log file values for max in/out on the 5 min intervals

I did the following test yesterday afternoon,
i have taken the counter values from the first
line of the log file, waited 5 minutes and took them again,
substracted them and devided them by 300 sec. That gave me
the exact avr. in en out values of the 2nd line in the .log
file, while the max values where not right.

The max. value's can be much bigger sometimes, this should not be
the case for the 5 min interval entries in the .log file,
or am i completely wrong ?

Can somebody explain how the 5 min max in/out values are made ?

I am investigating which figures to use to calculate the total uasage
of the day by adding 288 (5 min interval * 300) values.

best regards
