[rrd-users] Newbie problem

I'm a new user of RRD.  I want to recorder a counter (integer) value 
every five minutes.  However, now matter what I try, the value recorded 
is NOT the value I'm getting back (fetch,graph, dump,xport).  The value 
is some teeny fraction (x.yE-03 to x.yE-05).  At first, I thought this 
was because my RRA was AVERAGE, but I get the same results with LAST and 

rrdtool create foo.rrd DS:incoming:COUNTER:600:0:U RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:300 
RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:24:120 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:288:400 DS:reject:COUNTER:600:0:U 
RRA:MAX:0.5:1:300 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:24:120 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:288:400

rrdtool update foo.rrd -t incoming:reject N:56:2

Obviously, I'm doing *something* wrong.

For the record, I'm plotting occurrences of various messages in a log 
file.  It gets reset once a day, but I haven't even gotten that far.
