Aw, c'mon.  Things haven't been that bad lately.  I think people 
are either asking fewer redundant questions or are starting to 
use the faq and archives a little more...

Plus, that's an easy one to flame on...

Here's a question.  Anyone know what the .old file is used for?
(I know, I just want to see how many out in the audience know)

I got flamed on this question just over a week ago, so expect double as

It is in TFM - 

Here was Paul Williamson very generous response...



First line is that stamp of the last read, value one, value two.

All lines after that are in the form of 

last 300 second increment, "normalized" value one, "normalized" 
value two, max for value one during that last hour, max for value 
two during the last hour.  

Usually value one and two are "incoming bytes" and "outgoing bytes"
