MRTG bandwidth utilisation not same as sh interface

The other day  3rd party supplier ran some stats on our Gigabit link between 2  Cisco catalyst 3750Gs.

now the graphs produced showed only a Maximum output of about 100Mbps ( 5 minute intervals) yet when I do a show interface it shows a lot more always 150Mbps and more. So I did my own Perl script  doing an "sh interface" every minute and then graphed it, and the results were a lot different to the MRTG results.

Questions: I know MRTG uses SNMP  to get the traffic  is there a bug in the SNMP, what OID does it use?

does the "sh  interface" give the correct results?

I would be interested if anybody else has experienced this variance between MRTG and sh interface

On any interface over 100mbs you MUST use 64bit counters, as 100mbs uand below ses 32bit counters.  I have no clue about MRTG - as I use Cacti and it works great.

Please see the enclosed link to previous conversations. I should have looked into it more before I posted the question
