Seems to be working ok for me, but do seem to have one minor issue. 

Im graphing servers with 2gb+ of Ram and 4gb+ swapfiles. The counters are
returned in bytes. Normally I have 2 'maxbytes' lines on my graph, one to
indicate real memory and one to indicate total commited memory (ie physical
+ swapfile). Eg:

AbsMax[fhcpdy.memory]: 6547509248
MaxBytes1[fhcpdy.memory]: 2415493120      (physical)
MaxBytes2[fhcpdy.memory]: 6547509248	   (commit limit)

On graphs below the 2gb limit, the lines are being plotted. Above that, they
are not. Any ideas??
