Hi jeremy,

just you clarify: does your data-field only contain *one* transfer-field 
per domain per day?
If yes, rrdtool could not create any useful graphs out of this.
Of course it could create a graph containing lust a single bar..
However you could combine different data files into one graph, if this is 
what you wish for.
