There is a truckload of tools available that all use rrdtool to graph
stuff. Most probably, your problem is already solved in one of these

munin does quite a lot of local statistics, and can be easily
extended. I'd recommend investigating munin.

If you insist in doing the rrd stuff yourself, man rrdtutorial is
excellent and is a big help in climbing the learning curve to actually
understand the man pages. Also, the rrdtool distribution has a few
code examples.
