Unless I'm missing something here it looks pretty common.  I mean by this
that there doesn't seem to be any special tricks or so.

Don't try to build the somewhat more complicated graphs right away.  Start

If there is a specific thing you want to know just ask.  Mind however
that this list is not about retrieving the numbers.  It is about processing
them by rrdtool.
