[rrd-users] absolute and relative graphing of the same value

I'm looking for a way to display a value in two ways without recording it twice:
Lets say I'm monitoring a typical GAUGE value like diskspace or temperature.
Now I want do display the temperature as an absolute value (=> GAUGE => 25C) *and*
I want to display (in another grapgh) the change rate (eg. +3C/h), which would
be a typical DERIVE application ...
I tried to use GAUGE and operate with rpn PREV, but since the temporary step-size
varys when graphing, I wasn't very lucky in calculating the right numbers ...
Here's the diskspace example - this doesn't always do what I want ...
--title=Used Disk Space - delta in Bytes/h
It seems to have some erratic behavior when changing the start/end time of the
graph and therefore the scale ...
Any hints for me?
