[mrtg] Total number per 5 minute average

Hi, I am trying to do something slightly different with MRTG.

Basically I have a script which gives the total faxes in and total faxes out
as a number which is always incrementing, so if you check the number at 10pm
it will say 2000 faxes, then the number at 5 mins past 10 it will say 2010
faxes have been sent in total.  What I would like is to take the total
number and plot the difference at 5 minute intervals, therefore showing at
every 5 minutes how many faxes were sent.


Basically something like this :-


To start, at 10:00 there have been a total of 2000 faxes sent.

At 10:05 there have been a total of 2010 faxes sent, plot 10 (2010 - 2000)
on the graph at 5 mins.

At 10:10 there have been a total of 2015 faxes sent, plot 5(2015 - 2010) on
the graph at 10 mins.



I know the normal procedure is to find the difference between values but
then the number is divided by the time elapsed, I don't want this division
to happen.
