My first guess would be something in your SNMP gathering, MRTG config,
or something not related to m0n0wall.  Or maybe there is a reason the
stats seem strange, and they're really accurate.

I have ifgraph set up to graph interfaces on several m0n0wall boxes
and have never seen anything but accurate results.

Sample here: http://livebsd.com/m0n0wall/ifgraph/sample/m0n0wall-wan.html

If you want to try setting up ifgraph to see what results you get,
it's a very quick process and would eliminate or pinpoint any problems
in your MRTG or SNMP gathering.

I've put together instructions on setting up ifgraph to graph m0n0wall
interfaces.  This will be in the users guide (after some cleanup),
pending Manuel's approval, before long.
