[mrtg] MRTG shows "10k" for Total DSL Users

As said before, this is by design.


If you are using the routers2 frontend, add 'routers.cgi*Options[xxx]:
fixunit' for the appropriate target.  This will prevent the prefix from
being used.  


If you are using standard MRTG or 14all, then use the kMG[xxx]:
directive to override the use of the prefix.


Note that if the number gets too big, it will not fit in the space
available, though.  This was more of a problem in RRD 1.0.x than in


You can also use 'Options[xxx]: integer' to have the values shown as
integers rather than as decimals (they are normalised to the 5min
boundary which can sometimes result in fractional numbers which would
not be meaningful in this case)

I'm requesting your help to configure the Total DSL Active Users on
MRTG, where things used to show normally, but when the total number of
DSL users became high than 10,000 users, the result that MRTG shows now
is 10k instead of a number.
