[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
MAX. The DS is COUNTER.
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.
