Okay I'll admit it: I know very little of rrdtool. I'm using it 
through mrtg+rrd. In the config file, you tell it to use rrdtool, and 
voila, you're now an rrd user. If the limits weren't set, it's a, um, 
small, um, "missing feature" of mrtg+rrd. My mrtg configs definitely 
have max values in them.

I'll see if I can take your previous suggestions and make a go of it 
so as to avoid future 600Pbps spikes.

Thanks for the help,
