I have never even looked at options #1, I tried changing the value of
Maxbytes in the config file to a very low number, re-run indexmaker and my
croan jobs that call mrtg, and nothing changed.

Does that setting only affect new data, as in, once the report is already
made, you have to wait 24 hours for the new setting to take place?

Can someone tell me how to deal with logscape and seconmean options, they do
not show up in the cfgmaker manual at all, at least, not as far as I can
