[rrd-users] Spikes?

I got some odd spikes in my graphs which I can not explain. You can view 
them on http://hvdkooij.xs4all.nl/stats-week.cms

Oddly enough it does not occur on all the interfaces in all the cases it 

I found a script that would eliminate the spikes but it does seem to be 
able to find them.

When I dump them I see some odd values like:

                        <!-- 2003-04-12 01:15:00 CEST / 1050102900 -->

As this is a ADSL link it can not exceed 768 kb/s for downloads (4th 
field) and 128 kB/s for uploads (1st field).

The 6 fields are:

The number of unicast packets almost equals the amount of bytes send. 
Which is nonsense on ethernet due to the ethernet and IP header header 

I suspect something odd in the Zyzel router (Prestige 650R-13) but I can
not find the actual problem.

Does some someone have a working script to clear out the odd entries?
