The actual Maximum Bytes that you'll see on the port hasn't changed. All 
you want to change is how the data is displayed. You did that with the 
Bits (or removal of) parameter.  Using the Bits option merely multiplies 
the result of the rate by 8 to convert from bytes to bits.

Now, if you want to have this section changed automatically, you'll need 
to re-run cfgmaker and LEAVE OUT the '--global "options[_]: bits"' part 
of the command line.  MRTG by default will format everything in bytes 
instead of bits, unless you tell it otherwise.
