Hi Tobi, 

I've subscribed you to rrfw-devel list, with "no mail" option. 
Thus you can post to the list without restrictions, and 
other posts wouldn't bother you.

Question to Christian: how did you get those values?

Question to Tobi: It would be nice to have at least DERIVE 
suitable for floating point values. Yes, COUNTER is too much 
SNMP-specific, but isn't DERIVE designed to be more generic?

Besides, there's nothing written about integers in the manual...
