[rrd-users] Some advice.

  I think I have it - it was the heartbeat variable that was wrong - 
it needed to be > than 24 hours, rather than =.

Next thing - the FETCH command is now working, but instead of a bunch 
of nice integers, they have been
changed to float's which are obviously some kind of interpolation 
between the actual data I entered....
Can someone explain this - how do I avoid this, or is it just giving 
me the points between ? Looking
at the dump though, it definitely seems to have lost the original 
data I put in, which means I couldn't get
the price point right.

Let me explain again perhaps. Once a day (at some time during the 
day), I find out whether the price
of commodity C is $X dollars. Next Day (again sometime during the 
day, not the same time), I find out
it is $Y dollars. The day after it might be $Y dollars again.

I want the graph/data to show that all through the day on day 1, the 
price was X, and then Y on day 2 and day 3.

I'm sorry to be obviously abusing RRDTOOL's strong points in data 
flow graphing etc, but everyone has
told me RRD is the best tool for what I am trying to do.
