One annoying aspect to the Orca graphing element ... well, its annoying to
me ... is when you run it for the very first time. The orca perl script is
rather picky about not seeing any source files.
So what you need to do is let the data collectors run for at least 5
minutes to generate some data in the source directory - THEN startup the
grapher. Assuming you don't have anymore problems with your configuration,
it should start graphing.
