Nagios and check_mrtgtraf

I am getting wierd results from my check_mrtgtraf plugin, or more likely I am not understanding the command.

Here is the check for a particular network device:

define service{
use generic-service ; Name of service template to use
host_name HP5300
service_description MRTG Traffic Link
is_volatile 0
check_period 24x7
max_check_attempts 3
normal_check_interval 5
retry_check_interval 1
notification_interval 240
notification_period 24x7
notification_options w,c,r
check_command check_mrtgtraf!/var/www/html/mrtg/!350,350!384,384!15
Here is the Nagios results:

Status Information:
Traffic CRITICAL - Avg. In = 25.6 KB/s, Avg. Out = 61.4 KB/s
Performance Data:
in=25.600586KB/s;350.000000;384.000000;0.000000 in=61.370117KB/s;350.000000;384.000000;0.000000
I would like to set the threshold to 350kbs and 384kbs respectively. What am I doing wrong??

if you havent done so already, consult the help page for the "check_mrtgtraf" plugin to see its syntax by for example typing check_mrtgtraf --help ..this have to be done from the directory where the plugin is located unless you have set the PATH variable to include this path where the plugin resides.
