Not exactly. Generally, the maxbytes value is grabbed
when you build a configuration. If a maxbytes value
changes with each poll, then you'll have to come up
with a way to query the proper OID to get that info, then build the confuguration, making sure that the
target says the same. In most cases, there is a OID
for maxbytes, but it is not polled by MRTG on each run
of stat collection.
Is that kind of what you were looking for?

I have a question that I'm hoping someone can answer.
The MRTG reference states that the MaxBytes parameter is given a numeric
I'm hoping though that I can set it in the same way you get data with
the Target command, As a mib value by specifying:
Maxbytes[foo] OID:community at host
I've tried this and get ERROR: CFG Error in "Maxbytes[foo]",
OID:Comm at host must be a number bigger than 0
Hopefully there is another way.
Many thanks for you answers.
