First the answer: There is a setting "factor" which can be set for a
target. I'm not really sure about the effect when not using rrdtool
(oops). With rrdtool this is not used by MRTG. 14all multiplies the
values from the rrd file for the graphs, so it might be just what you

Factor[fore-xx]: 53

(if you use 14all v1.0 use the setting "UseRRDTool[..]: factor: 53")

Very good explanation! You have proven deep knowledge of rrdtool to
become a first level rrdtool supporter (you may now wear the
yellow-white cable)! I want to let everybody know that Young Master
Martin Van Gelder from now on has the authorization to answer easy
questions on this list. Congratulation! ;-)

Want to become a "Yound Developer"? ;-)
