That may work - I don't think I've ever used unscaled graphs.  I kind of like
having a constant scale to easily gauge % of utilization, especially if I'm
looking through the graphs of multiple devices.  Ideally, I'd like to set the
range for each graph (d/w/m/y), which I believe is currently controlled by
maxbytes, and can only designated for the whole target, not the individual

To tell the truth, I haven't experimented yet with simply setting maxbytes to 24
and seeing what mrtg does to the m/y graphs.  I assume that it will just plot
old values that were higher than 24 at the max of 24, rather than letting the
graph scale larger.
