Subject: [mrtg] bytes v/s bits

Hello List,


We are facing an issue with MRTG where the Bandwidth utilization on the
polled equipment is showing in bits instead of bytes.


Below is the header of mrtg.cfg file  (Options[_]:bits is set):


EnableIPv6: no

WorkDir: /rddbs/

Options[_]: bits,growright

RunAsDaemon: Yes

LogFormat: rrdtool

PathAdd: /data/rrdtool-1.2.19/bin

LibAdd: /data/rrdtool-1.2.19/lib/perl

Forks: 4




I tried to set the option under the monitored interfaces themselves but
this did not help.


##### Customer: tools

## x.x.x.x - Interface 3


Target[mytools_my-router-1_3.interfacegigabitethernet0-0]: 3:public@

MaxBytes[mytools_my-router-1_3.interfacegigabitethernet0-0]: 12500000

Title[mytools_my-router-1_3.interfacegigabitethernet0-0]: Traffic
Analysis for mytools x.x.x.x 3

Options[_]: bits,growright



I also found a post where setting the 64 bit counters helped but it did
not work for me even though my equipment supports 64 bit counters.

Any ideas/suggestions are highly appreciated.
