Hey all -

Using the Perl shared library still isnt' working... Here's what I have:

    $UpdateInfo = $TimeStamp . ":" . $BytesReceived . ":" . $BytesSent;


    if ($ERROR = RRDs::error){
     print "Error on updating $DatabaseFile: $ERROR\n";

Now, the error that I receive is:

     Error on updating /var/local/rrdtool-1.0.28/workdir/marlow..com.rrd: rrdopen can't open 'dummy': A file or directory in the path name does not

Any ideas where the program is getting 'dummy' from?  The $DatabaseFile is correct, and updateInfo is put together correctly.
If I pass the same argurements through a backtics shell call to rrdtool, it works fine....

Thanks -

I made one a couple of months ago.. It's just a quick'n dirty solution to
plot the cpu usage.


I hope it's of some use.
