Hi there people,

Just a quick question. I want to feed the following values into a RRD

10 20 25 35 42

and upon graphing get the values

10 5 10 7

So basically I want to plot the difference between the values fed into
the RRD. As far as I can see not COUNTER (takes the average over time),
GAUGE (takes the absolute value), DERIVE (like COUNTER but can handle
negative delta values) or ABSOLUTE (also average over time, but does not
work on delta).

Am I missing something here, because this would have come up before I

Any comment most welcome.
