I have a similar setup (non-polling master with slaves) and hit the same
issue some time ago; after some research found the charts feature
doesn't work with slave data, so I ended up disabling it.  I can't put
my finger on how I came to that conclusion, but that's at least what my
log entry for the config change says :)  If i find the definitive
reason, I'll follow-up (unless anyone else chimes in with the answer).
