the reason for this is, that mrtg is an entirely time dependant
beast ... a total os a completely square thing in this equation ...
you can not say total, you must say: total from time x to time y
... and if you say this, you can say average from time x to time y
multiplied by y - x ... and there ... puff comes your total ... out
of the blue without any hacking required
