Hey Sven , thank you very much for you detailed information, I spent a few
hours going thought some documents about aberrant yesterday and feel better
My current rrdtool is at version 1.0.49, which even does not support
"updatev" argument, so I am not sure what the different between "update" and
"updatev" will be, will install rrdtool-1.2.19 today and do some test.
