yes....stupid me! :)

I have un-commented the appropriate lines in log2rrd and things look better...

but, why would it have looked bad *after* I ran log2rrd? My understanding would be that log2rrd would convert everything as a gauge, but mrtg would at that point start recording everything as a counter, so shouldn't the graph have looked odd up to the point I 'converted', then started looking normal?

I may be mistaken though......

Now, I have been given the task of converting it all over to rrdtool (which will be used with mrtg-2.8.12 + 14all.cgi). It seems to run ok, but the graphs look odd (I'm assuming do to counter resets). Can anyone give me input on it? Here are the graphs:
