cfgmaker will set it to that value.  If you build your config by hand
you can put other values there.

The purposes of MaxBytes are:
1.  To determine what the largest reasonable increment is, so that the
roll-over routine can detect a counter-wrap.
2.  To provide a baseline for other statistics (provide percentages).

The second use is less important to the internal functioning of the
poller than the first.
