[mrtg] Graphing WebSite Hits, Values that Increment infinitely

The problem is you are using "gauge" in your Options.

Remove that and you should be fine.


Treat the values gathered from target as 'current status' measurements and
not as ever incrementing counters. This would be useful to monitor things
like disk space, processor load, temperature, and the like ...

In the absence of 'gauge' or 'absolute' options, MRTG treats variables as a
counters and calculates the difference between the current and the previous
value and divides that by the elapsed time between the last two readings to
get the value to be plotted.

Hello Mrtg Group,


I  have several things i am trying to graph like website hits, ssl faliures

my scripts output in the following way.




The problem is the graphs just keep increasing they dont graph the change
from the last poll.  


How do i configure it so that, it will graph just the changes from each


Below are my  configs


Thanks, Eric
