Can't you generate the graphs or can't you see any difference?  Are you
perhaps looking at cached data?

Could it be that the file permissions are set wrong so that rrdtool cannot
write the images?  (try to use another location and/or other filename).

Could it be that the images are generated in another location from where
you expect them to be generated?

If the timestamp of the .rrd files change, you are saving your data.  It
won't be available in high resolution but it will be there.
