I am collecting data from an SNMP counter into an rrdtool database.
I'd like to be able to plot effectively the average number of
connections over time. So, for example, if I get (at 5 minute
5, 10, 12, 20, 23
I want to plot the difference from the previous, value, i.e.:
<anything>, 5, 2, 8, 3
If I store this data in a COUNTER datatype, all I get is the
percentage change over the previous value, which is not what I want.
I thought I could do this using PREV, but I can't see how...
woudl give me:
0, 10, 2, 18, 5
which is not really what I want.
I can't do
because I can't reassign b.
Is there anything I can do to get this to work?
Thanks in advance,
