Maybe, but the RRDs already have the data.  If you leave it in the .cfg,
then orca will still spend time creating new PNGs and HTML files from
the old data. 

Removing the plots from the .cfg shouldn't be a problem.  I don't know
what's going on with the OP, but I routinely trim at .cfg for speed and
better presentation of data, but leave all the data in the orcallator
files so I can go back and graph if I need to.  The only thing I've done
is comment out the plot sections.  I don't get the errors reported.
