[mrtg] MRTG "flat-line" after a while of service outage

I've setup MRTG to graph the throuput of some internal software using an
external program and it worked well for a few weeks.
Yesterday we took down all the monitored services for a major database
overhaul and since then MRTG records the service's throughput as zero even
though the external program continue to show increasing counters of work
For instance running the external program outputs:
And a few seconds later it will show:
Nothing has changed in the program or the MRTG configuration during that
Here is the relevant part from that counter's config file:
Target[total]: `total-ti-counter /mnt/monitored/*/total.txt`
MaxBytes is way more than the expected throughput (the throughput based on
the numbers above are 7.8 per second) but even setting it to 1000 instead of
50 doesn't help change the situation.
What could be wrong?
