You may want to move this discussion to rrd-users, where it belongs.

In short, you are asking RRDtool to produce rates for the future. It
cannot do so.  Each pixel column represents an amount of time and your
last pixel column ends in the future.

If you want data for the last 30 days, it probably doesn't matter if
you generate the graph at 1am and ask for midnight-30days to midnight.
That way, the last row will not be empty.

I ask you to respect any "Reply-To" and "Mail-Follow-Up" headers.  If
you reply to me off-list, you'd better tell me you're doing so.  If
you don't, and if I reply to the list, that's your problem, not mine.
