[rrd-users] Re: Error: "to float not complete:tail"

My reply with the problem never made it through...the problem was that
the data I was giving rrdtool was coming from a Windows machine.  When I
looked at the data with a hex editor, it had CR & LF at the end of the
line.  Once I stripped them off in the python program that pulled the
data, the problem was solved.  I guess rrdtool doesn't know how to
handle them.  I've been putting values in and out of the RRD for about
12 hours now with no errors.  According to the man pages, using numbers
as a DS name is totally valid though...which is a relief. :)
