>I am trying to update an rrd file I created. Basically I am grabbing the min, max and average response times from a server. I created the rrd file using the following parameters:

>rrdtool.exe create latency.rrd
>--start now

>I am trying to update it but having problems getting the following error:

>"ERROR: latency.rrd: found extra data on update argument: 0.40:0.88:0.73"

>I am typing the following to update the rrd file:

>rrdtool update latency.rrd 08/10/2015_11:33:0.40:0.88:0.73

>0.40 = Minimum
>0.88 = Maximum
>0.73 =  Average

>Is it the decimal point its having issues with?

It’s the colons in your time. Send epoch, or “N” for now, and remove the date/time stamp.
