You need to use AbsMax[] = 1Gbps and MaxBytes[] = 600Mbps

Percentages are relative to MaxBytes, data range is less than AbsMax.

I have a pipe that's 600Mb/s but burstable up to 1Gb/s. Currently I have
the graph set with maxbytes = 600Mb/s but if I go beyond that MRTG
ignores the extra. If I the maxbytes to 1Gb/s the percentages are all
based on a full 1Gb/s.
