You are top posting.  Usually I refuse to reply.

A decimal dot followed by a fraction ?!?  I don't think this is normal.

Now get a utility such as "snmpget" or "snmptool.exe".  When performing
the SNMP query yourself (using snmpget) the result should be very near
to these two values.  Calculations done by MRTG can also be done by hand.

If this results in a factor 1000 as well, forget about MRTG until the
device is understood.

You have modified these lines.  Are you sure you did not leave out some
"unimportant stuff" such as "* 1000" ?
