[mrtg] Need to display a whole number, no decimal

It's called normalization.  MRTG is interpreting the number because 
the time of the poll is not exact.

Yes, it happens to all of us.  You might not want it, but it's a necessary 
component for doing high-volume traffic reading.  It also might be that 
you should be using another option like gauge or something.

When MRTG polls ( 5 minute interval ) it is displaying the ‘current’ record as a number with a decimal.  The item being polled is a hard number, no decimal.  I do not understand why it adding a decimal, or from where it is getting that number.  
Has anyone run into this before?
