[rrd-users] Confusion about VDEF total and graph values

Ah yes of course, that just explains it Alex, thanks!

I didn't think this through enough. There's more happening than just
calculating the difference between the last two measured values. When
graphed that difference is spread out over 3600 seconds (in my case), thus
indeed becoming a rate. 

I remember reading many times about this rate vs value thing (maybe even on
your site). I guess working with GAUGE DST's a lot (which are already a
rate) before starting with the gas counter made me forget this important

Thanks again!
