Are you *sure* about this?  No offence, but most errors turn out to
be configuration issues.  Your problem could be that you are displaying
-0.37 dB ...  or you aren't using GAUGE where you should use it.

First find out where the problem is.  Check the input to MRTG,
check the input to RRDtool,  check the contents of the RRD,
check properties of the RRD (such as min and max values, see
the "rrdtool tune" command).

Next thing to do is to provide information to this list.
"It doesn't work" is not good enough.

Best is to write a small example (the smallest that works) that
demonstrates the problem.  Include all relevant information,
including the mrtg config file and the script that feeds data to
MRTG.  Make sure you are using a data source that can be reproduced,
a script called from the external program interface would be nice.
