If you log  ifInOctets.x&ifOutOctets.x:community at device  then 
MaxBytes1 will cap ifInOctets and MaxBytes2 will cap ifOutOctets.

When in doubt, download a large file from a big, nearby source. This
will (or: should) show up in your setup.

If you are monitoring the ethernet interface of a router, downloaded
traffic will be _outbound_ traffic when viewed from that device.

Set AbsMax to a high value.  MaxBytes will be used to calculate
percentages, AbsMax will be used to reject rates that are way too large.
