heya I finally got my BW counters to work so thanks to the people that mailed me. Now to another problem. I created a rrd where i want all system related information entered, here is the command i used to create it:

/bin/rrdtool create system-state.rrd \
        DS:bwinput:COUNTER:600:U:U DS:bwoutput:COUNTER:600:U:U \
        DS:cpuidle:GAUGE:600:0:100 DS:memoryfree:GAUGE:600:0:261512 \
        DS:swapfree:GAUGE:600:0:262200 DS:processes:GAUGE:600:0:U \
        DS:connections:COUNTER:600:0:U \
        RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:600 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:6:700 \
        RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:24:775 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:288:797 \
        RRA:MAX:0.5:1:600 RRA:MAX:0.5:6:700 \
        RRA:MAX:0.5:24:775 RRA:MAX:0.5:288:797

this worked and the rrd is created being ~350KB in size. Now when i use the rrdupdate as follows:
/bin/rrdtool update q-fw1-hardware.rrd N:$inet_in:$inet_out:$cpu_usage:$mem_avail:$swap_avail:$proc:$conn

it goes thru without complains etc, and every variable i have there is defined and returns a value when executed.

however when i check the db size, it has not changed and when i try to create a graph, the graph is blank.

here is the script i use for cpu load:
