I'm working on my-frirst-rrd. I'm creating a rrd for load percentages on APC web/SNMP sets.

MS1-4 are power strips on a single APC head.  The range is 0 to 100 percent.

The error I get is:

ERROR: can't parse argument 'DS:MS1:GAUGE:0.5:1:100'

As far as I can tell from the docs, everything is right.  Thoughts?

rrdtool create loadpercent.rrd --start `date +%s` --step 300 \
DS:MS1:GAUGE:0.5:0:100 \
DS:MS2:GAUGE:0.5:0:100 \
DS:MS3:GAUGE:0.5:0:100 \
DS:MS4:GAUGE:0.5:0:100 \
RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:24 \
RRA:MIN:0.5:1:24 \
RRA:MAX:0.5:1:24 \
RRA:LAST:0.5:1:24 ;
