[rrd-users] graph with incomplete data

Hi All,

I'm a relative newbie to RRD, so apologies in advance if my question is asinine...
Anyway, I'm using Hobbit / Xymon to create my .rrd files, and I'm disappointed with the granularity of a 60 day graph.  I'd like to see daily CPU peaks and valleys instead of an overall average like I'm getting, so I thought that more datapoints would solve the problem.
The RRA's were defined initially as follows:


I used rrdtool resize to change the RRA3 to 1152 datapoints.  Now, the graph only shows the past 45 or so days out of 60, and can't seem to figure out what else I need to do to make this graph look OK.

Thanks in advance!
