Thank you Petteri!

I now use this command to generate the graph:

/usr/bin/rrdtool graph 
/home/lennart/Projekte/scopeport-interface-web/rrd/loadavg.png --start 
1198589209 --end N 
AREA:cpu1#fbcf00:'CPU load average, last minute' 
LINE2:cpu5#ff7800:'CPU load average, last 5 minutes' 
LINE1:cpu15#ff0000:'CPU load average, last 15 minutes' 
VRULE:1198589149#A0A0A0 VRULE:1198607158#A0A0A0:'Client startup' -t 'CPU 
load [sundaysister]' -c FONT#c4a100 -c BACK#000000 -c CANVAS#292827 -c 
GRID#696969 -c MGRID#877254 -c AXIS#bdbdbd -c ARROW#bdbdbd -y 0.2:1 -X 1

It looks good. I used "-X 1" because without it i get a "0, 200m, 400m, 
600m, 800m, 1000m" - Was that a good idea? Or is there something else 
wrong that causes this problem?

Thank you.
