[mrtg] big peaks on counter-reset

I had a similar problem with my application.
What is actually happening is that MRTG is designed with a 32-bit
counter in mind. When it sees the count start again at 0, MRTG is
assuming it reached the max ( 2^32-1 ) and then it wrapped around.
What I can recommend is that you reduce the MaxBytes value to a number
that is slightly higher than the max amount of traffic you expect to
see between two MRTG samples, but a lot lower than the counter
Hope this helps.
