Hi Alex, thanks for yuor answer.....I think probably my problem is
related to the type of DS i used: maybe GAUGE is not appropriate for the
values i'm collecting from the Ldap server; i think COUNTER fits better:
i'll try to change.
First of all i'll take a look at your DOCs.....
By the way i have another begginner question: reading some examples on
graphing i cannot understand some parameters used in the GPRINT statement:
As an example i point my attention to a GPRINT statement used to graph
the total amount of bits passed trow an ethernet link
*GPRINT:totBits:AVERAGE:" Avg \\: %8.2lf %s\\n"
what does it mean the *%8.2lf* parameter ???
I looked at the man page of rrdgraph and i see that in the _format_
string there could be a *lf*, a *lg* or a *le* marker in the place
"where the number should be printed"....
It's not so clear for me the meaning of these markers and, in the above
example, the meaning of the *%8.2lf*.
Any help is welcome, thanks in advance,
