Oops never mind about the max speed suggestion, I think that's only relevant
to percentage calculations, not absolute measurements such as the problem
you're having.

I'm guessing the pipe is 6 mega BITS per second, and your graph is in BYTES
per second, so that may be part of the problem. But your graph shows a peak
of around 36K bytes, which, if we multiply by 8 bits/byte works out to about
.3 mega bits, so that's still off by a factor of 10. Does the max speed on
the page show correctly (i.e. "6.0 Mbits/s")? I believe that's used in the
calculations for the graph.

I cannot seem to figure out why the machine is reporting such low
results (I have attached a link to a copy of one graph). This graph is
the interface of a 6 meg pipe that I know atleast 3 meg are being used
