Perl seems to handle it well:

bash-2.04$ perl -e "print 6.0e-06 + 1;"

bash-2.04$ perl -v
This is perl, v5.6.0 built for i386-linux

I don't think this is what rrdtool was meant for. Try www.nagios.org.

I would like an rrdtool plugin for Nagios at some point. If I could get
some help with the C library for rrdtool, I'd probably write one.Actually,
If I could get some help understanding the library, I'd probably write
threshold alarm too.

Actually, shell programming an alarm wouldn't be so bad if I could figure
out how to handle the scientific notation. Ideas?

I'd heard about rrdtool for quite some time, though I've only started
playing with it over the past few days. It's unfortunate that its benefits
were not brought to my attention sooner.
