[mrtg-developers] Mathematical operations on OIDs

This solution worked. But now i have a problem when the calcualtion results
in a negative value.
Lets say [oid1 - (oid2 * 5)] gives a positive value and [oid3 - (oid4 * 10)]
gives a negative value then the rrds are not able to update these values and
hence my graph shows Nan
Have you come across something like this before? Can mrtg can handle this?
