[Orca-users] writing data to my input file to orca if no new data is found

I am currently using orca to graph "uptime" data collected from
multiple systems. The data files consist of three columns...
epoch sys_uptime_value app_uptime_value

epoch - number of seconds since ???? 1971
sys_uptime - 0 or 1 (system either up or down)
app_uptime - 0 or 1 (app either up or down)

Each system has its own data file. I've attempted reading and
modifying orca so that when it does NOT find the input data file
updated (it assumes the sys and app are down), it updates it by
appending a line to the corresponding input data file containing...

epoch 0 0

Unfortunately, I've been unsuccessful.

Can someone tell me if this can be done within the config file or if
it needs to be done in the orca program, and if so, where/how.

Much thanks in advance!
