Bandwidth graphs in Proxmox

The resource graphs in proxmox are a handy tool to keep an eye on what your VPS is doing.  

Importantly, the bandwidth graphs register MEGABYTES (mBps) per second, not MEGABITS (mbps) per second.  This means that in order to see mbps (not mBps) you should multiply the numbers on the Y-axis of the graph by 8.  This scale cannot be modified so the best we can do is work around it.

For reference, 

1 mbps = .125mBps
5 mbps = .63mBps
10 mbps = 1.25mBps
100 mbps = 12.5mBps
