This won't work.  If you're going to give the numbers through
stdin you have to do it like this:

    echo update host1users.rrd N:123 | rrdtool -

This *should* work.  You have to use GAUGE as your data source type.
Maybe you need to do a few updates in a row.

Why make it so difficult for yourself?  Start by reading the tutorial.
Once you understand the examples, alter some of them.  Once this works
as expected, make it harder for yourself.

Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give
offence. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit
communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about
solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.
