Ok guys,
A bit confused on this time thing. When filling the database up do you have 
to use "epoch" time from 1970? I checked out the man page on rrdtool fetch 
and it talked about how to specify AT-STYLE formatting. I would rather use 
many of the other formats like 20010609 to specify date and time rather than 
But according to the documentation it says this:

The time when the graph should begin. Time in seconds since epoch 
(1970-01-01) is required. 

Then it goes on to say other ways to specify time. So what exactly is 
Any information would greatly be appreciated....
