[rrd-users] problem with plotting unkown data

I want to plot the number of processes on my server, defining fewer
than 80 as ok, 80-120 as critical and more than 120 as overload.
Here's how I try to plot it:
/usr/local/bin/rrdtool graph /path/to/png/myserver.proc-6h.png --
start -21600 \
-t "myserver (6h number of processes, 5min intervals)" \
--lower-limit 0 \
--vertical-label "number of processes" \
where PROCCRITS=80, PROCCRITH=120
for my actual monitored data it works fine. For processes < 80 I habe
nice blue , for 80<=proc<=120 i have orange and red for more than 120
proccesses. The problem is that all unkown data (the time period
that hasn't been monitored since I start at -21600 seconds i.e. 6
hours in the past) is now displayed with 80 proccesses instead of 0.
So all my plots start with a long blue constant 80 bar until the
first point where the monitoring starts.
How can I avoid unkown data being treated as 80 proccesses and avoid
the blue bar?
