I have no direct answer to your question but 2 remarks:
- Your formula should give you bytes/s not bits/mn
- If you want bytes/s, just let Zabbix do it
If you set your item with option "Store value" to "Delta (speed per second)" instead of "As is", Zabbix will store directly bytes/s, without spikes.
If you want bits/s, set "Use custom multiplier" to 8.
