I'm interested in knowing what happened between March 6 and March 7 on
the Ames FDDI ring.  That's when the utilization jumped from around 60% to
90%.  Also of interest is that it appears MFS stopped collecting stats
late in the afternoon, with utilization around 60%, on the 6th, and
didn't start collecting again until around noon on the 7th,  at which time
utilization is running at 90%.

Anyone know what happened?
