MRTG will grab the current value the next time it is run.  Duplicating
this by hand is not necessary as you could wait until the next cycle and
see the rate in the second line of the log.  The only reason you would
need to perform these calculations by hand (IE. snmpget) would be if you
are auditing the results you are already getting from mrtg.

I've never used thresholds before but they are documented:


I believe .5Mb/s works out to:

ThreshMinI[Target]: 500000

Good luck.
