Okay.  I've got that now.... 

Assuming I do that, and run a single process with -r so that the RRD is
updated continuously, but the PNGs are not, how do I update the PNGs at
other times?

Can I run a separate orca with a -o, or since both processes would
expect to be able to update the RRDs, would they step on each other?

I've got a test setup that way now.  I'm sure I can migrate the existing
stuff over pretty easily.

Thanks for the help.
