Don't guess.  Most likely you guess wrong.

There are several tools you should use to investigate the real
cause of the problem:

rrdtool last
rrdtool fetch
rrdtool dump

and last but not least you should (at least temporarily) write
your update command to a log file for future analysis. It wouldn't
be a first if '$LOAD' does not contain what you think it does.
