The /1 is useless. *If* you want to run mrtg every minute just write
a star and get rid of the "/1".
MRTG will get a slightly better idea of the maximum rates (because they
are seen over a one-minute period in stead of a five-minute period).
IMHO this is not worth the effort. If you need a high precision on
your maximum rate, get yourself some hardware box that measures every
second (or better).
Running MRTG every minute may prove to be too much for your hardware/OS.
