I am using mrtg 2.9.1 on a Win2000 Server system, and I am creating my own mrtg 
data for several graphs. Some of the graphs use values that are "status" like 
and work fine with the "gauge" option. However, for graphs that use ever-
incrementing counters don't work properly. For example, I am monitoring 
requests to my web site my counting the number of lines in an access log. Here 
is the data file:

12:00:02   Up 6 days 11:19:56   0 connections
[machine name]


My config looks like this:

Target[dhyana_http]:`type d:\temp\dhyana_httprequests`
MaxBytes[dhyana_http]: 100
Options[dhyana_http]: integer, nopercent, growright
AbsMax[dhyana_http]: 1000
Unscaled[dhyana_http]: ymw
YLegend[dhyana_http]: HTTP Requests
ShortLegend[dhyana_http]: Requests
Legend1[dhyana_http]: HTTP Requests

This produces a log file which has the first line correct, but the following 
lines are all zeros. Is there a bug related to this or am I using it
