'Octets per 5 min' and 'Octets per min' as a Unit for autoconversion to bps, MB/s, GB/s

Extensions 2.0 SNMP obtains interface count metrics from ifTable & ifXTable as delta number of Octets, often with a polling interval of 60, or 300s.

Network Engineers prefer to visualise this in units scaled in bps.

Currently I'm using BytePerMinute by changing my poll interval to 1m. So I guess BytePer5Minute would be great. 

 

The second thing is for example ifHCInOctet: If ifHCInOctet.count is a computed delta value that could be used by Davis, or Data Explorer, could there be a ifHCInOctet.count.bps and/or ifHCInOutet.count.5bps be made available for Davis and Data Explorer?
