[mrtg] Ping Probe graphs skewed

I run MRTG Ping Probe to graph latency to about 100 different hosts.  I've
got a question regarding how the data is displayed in the graphs.  Usually
all these monitoring hosts will respond to a ping in less than 50ms, but
depending on atmospheric conditions, ping times may spike to 500ms or even a
timeout.  When the ping times spike, the graph becomes skewed to display the
new scale which makes the majority of the 50ms pings look like a flat line
which it is not.  Is there any way to have MRTG not scale the graphs, or to
use a static scale, or something which would fix this problem.  Thanks very
