[smokeping-users] Graph question

Hi all


I have a couple of questions regarding smokeping and rrdtool
which I’m hoping someone can assist with.


I would like the graphs generated via smokeping to be
smooth, instead of stair-case jagged like. 
According to the RRDtool page, the “--slope-mode” switch can be used to
accomplish this.  I don’t have much knowledge
of perl or RRD but I did manage to find this file called “RRDtools.pm” located
at “/opt/smokeping/lib/Smokeping/RRDtools.pm” . 
I modified the following lines below from the RRDtools.pm file but it
didn’t make a difference.  


# or compare them
against another create list

 my @create = ('--step', 60,
'DS:ds0:GAUGE:120:0:U', 'RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:1008', '--slope-mode');


Not really sure what I’m doing here, was just taking a
guess.  If anyone knows how to apply the
slope-mode parameter and can give an example config paste that would definitely
be appreciated J
