Dear Alex ....
First i have to thank you for your responce and for your time spending for
my problem.

I am not using RRDTOOL for routers/switches/SNMP-enabled-devices
I am using RRDTOOL to plot time values as GAUGE.
I request a DNS entry and then i plot the responce time.

It could take from 3 millisecs to 4000 millisecs etc etc.
That means there is no MAX for my values ;-(

BTW ... Thank you for your script advice...

Actualy I  dont.. But my expirence said that.. i saw the plots and with this
i can drop all this high values from all of my plots

Another algorithm i am thinkig is the folowing
Is it possible ???
Is it correct the folowing command ??

And a last question/wish to Tobi...
I have read the mailing list and i saw there is a need for persentile
While it is imposible to do that with CDEF/RPN and i have to write a script
to calculate this
is it possible to add this function native in a next version of RRDTOOL???

p.s. Sorry again  for my bad english...
