I realized that I need to properly format this question for the list.
Sorry about the confusing one that I posted previously.

I have been through the archives & smokeping.pm source and would like
clarification on one thing. 

If the loss value in the rrd database is as Tobi said "the number of
lost packets in absolute numbers"
Then how come I have floating point numbers instead of integers?

uptime  loss
nan 	1.9366666667e+00
nan 	2.9333333333e+00
nan 	2.0666666667e+00
nan 	1.0666666667e+00
nan 	1.9333333333e+00

I have looked at the source and cannot understand why I would end up
with floats in that column that didn't have all zero's in the decimal
positions. Further more when I count the number of 'nan's in the ping
values on the same row they don't always correlate with the rounded or
truncated integer value in the loss section. What am I doing stupidly??
