[mrtg] QLogic Fiber Channel Switches

I'm trying to monitor bandwidth on my QLogic fiber channel switches
but I've run into a snag. You see, I've found OIDs for each of the
ports that according to the MIB report in octets - but there are 2
instances per interface. Both show traffic. For the life of me I can't
figure out why there are two.

However, if I view the stats on the HTML interface, it shows class 3
words and frames, total, and per-second. I'm thinking that maybe this
is what I'm seeing; words and frames. But nowhere, including the MIB
documentation PDF that QLogic suplies, does it tell me.

So, I wanted to check with the list and see if any of you are
successfully monitoring BPS or KBPS, etc on QLogic switches. For the
record, I'm referring to 5600's.
