[rrd-users] Re: Sudden spike in RRD graph

Hi Alex,

How do I prevent the spike whenever I change a value in the router 

Because I am polling the rate-limit data, and after I had changed the 
value, the spike will appear. Please advise how can I maintain the graph 
with all the data after a change in value.

Your advise is greatly appreciated.
