I'll explain a bit further.
I'm creating a parser for MRTG.cfg files.
(The same files who are used by the routers2.cgi util)
Now I have counters (e.g. a firewall rule counter) and some traffic
routers2.cgi seems to know when to multiply data by 8 for plotting traffic
I was wondering how routers2.cgi determines this.
But it seems there is not way of doing this, right?
Maybe I should just look for the word 'traffic' in the description...
Well.. thanks anyway!
