if you have 1.2.x it can be done this way:
(from the manual http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/doc/rrdgraph_rpn.en.html)
Returns the rate from each defined time slot multiplied with the step size.
This can, for instance, return total bytes transfered when you have logged
bytes per second. The time component returns the number of seconds. 
Example: VDEF:total=mydata,TOTAL

or with rrdtool 1.0.x here is a little part from my perl script

push(@data,"GPRINT:totalin:AVERAGE:Total traffic\\: %.2lf %s\\n");
push(@data,"GPRINT:totalout:AVERAGE:Total traffic\\: %.2lf %s");
