Having run 6 weeks now the graphs are perfect:-)) I've reset the
counter (as can happen for real). Now I have no graphs, just
flat lines, with a single spike when the counter was reset. So the
resetting of the counter appears to have 'wiped out' 6 weeks of
using rrdtool info on the rrd and looking at the time the counter
was reset I can't see a spike in the data, the value is 50(ish)
on each increment.
I must be missing something but I can't see what it is!!!!
