Set absmax to 1gig and maxbytes to 100meg ( divided by 8 to convert megabits to megabytes, of course)

That will allow your percentages to display based on committed bandwidth, but allow you to monitor actual traffic when it bursts above CIR.

 I have managed to setup SNMP and MRTG and get successful connections, but I’m confused about the MaxBytes, AbsMax, and Unscaled.  As I said, the link speed is supposed to be 100Mbit/s (100Mbps).
