i have some logfiles, filled with accounting messages from my DSL router and
want RRD to build a nice graph of the inbound and outbound traffic.
The messages occures asynchronously, about every few seconds. They contain
infos about how many bytes have bin received and send over the wire to that
time. So the cumulated value over a given time period gives the ammount of
data send/received in total.

Now, i have written a parse for that logs getting:

Well, i feed that into an RRD but the resulting graph was frustrating.
Instead of a nice shape i get only spikes in the graph, really ugly and
unuseable. What do i do wrong?
