Question re: DSTs.

I would like to get data from a socket every 2 seconds (packet data) and
get the number of packets received every second.  Since the packet data
is available only every 2 seconds, I was planning on getting the 1st set
of data, and dividing it by 2, then the next 2 seconds, getting that
data, divide it by 2, then get the difference between the 1st set and
the 2nd set.  Then store that into the database.

I guess I am not sure what DST to use.  If I use COUNTER or GAUGE?  I
believe Counter stores the actual value but the amount has to be > than
the previous amount stored.

Any thoughts?
