Nope. The max number is U (unknown -> not set)
100 is the number of seconds that may be inbetween updates. However,
you are updating every 300 seconds. Result: each update is considered
to be too old --> discard it.
Try using 400 in stead.

Well, technically you should say "steps" but yes, this is correct.
(step is the default of 300 seconds per PDP. stepS is 1 PDP per CDP.
step is for the entire database, steps is for each RRA)

1: You can probably use $comando = "c:/rrdtool/bin/rrdtool update ....
2: You should be able to call rrdtool directly from perl

Yup. Always "NaN" which is shown to you as "#IND"
