[rrd-users] RRDTool not accepting any updates (NaN instead)

 Your DS are of type 'derive', with a minimum value of 0.  'Derive' stores the rate of change of the variable, IE (( x - x(prev))/(t-t(prev)))  This means you'll need at least two sequential updates, which must be increasing (in order to get a valid positive derivitive) before you'll see anything stored in the RRAs.  Since your step is 60s, this means two increasing updates about 1min apart, and more than 2 (4, 13, 145) if you want any of the RRAs with a cdp of more than 1 to show a value (since your XFF is 0.5).
