If you have a GAUGE value, it already is "per second".  If your value
isn't, then you haven't set it up properly.

The input is already a rate, and you need not convert it, or it is not
a rate and are scr*wed.  Any attempt to repair the damage is a kludge
at best.  Redo from start, this time using the proper counter type.

If this information didn't help, you didn't describe the problem. Try again.
