[mrtg] trying to understand.

Im trying to understand weather to use gauge, absolute or neither.
Ive seen the description in the command reference, but im not sure weather im
getting it right.

Im using an external program that reads the value from a file (cat).
At midnight the values start at zero, then slowly goes up (never resetted)
until at midnight the value goes back to zero.
(So, for example, at midnight, I have 0, at 8am I have 1200, at 8pm i have
5300 and at 11:59pm i have 9000, and goes on like this)

Which options should I use? gauge, absolute or just skip the options.
If I use gauge, it shows at 12:00(noon) for the 5 minute interval that
current: 1200.
But the reality is that I've got 1200 from midnight, but last 5 minutes
only 30.
How can I make my graph show this?

Thanks in advance
