If you'd like to get rid of any double X.XX values and convert them to 
integers, have you considered a Perl or C or Bash or ZSH int/floor/ceil 
type of function? :-)  Perhaps there's some intermediate steps that could 
also happen between the data returned by rrdtool and your application? 
It should be rather trivial to convert all those mathematical values? :-)

With regards to your previous email (as you write -- "my goal is to store 
data and ONLY display the maximum value"), max values are not necessarily 
integer values.  Are you also able to share more about your overall goals?

As a disclaimer, I'm sure there's others on this mailing list that know a 
lot more than I do about such things, and I defer to their wise expertise.

Hope this may help, at least a bit.   Take care,

William R. Lorenz
