I'm using orca 27b2, perl 5.6.1, and rrd 1.0.33. I built a small config file
on my own:
#cat /usr/local/orca/orca.conf
state_file /usr/local/orca/orca.state
html_dir /usr/local/httpd/htdocs/orca
rrd_dir /usr/local/orca/rrd
late_interval 2 * interval
warn_email rbrackett at dsm.net thoran at dsm.net
group wizard {
find_files /var/flowdata/wizard.dat
column_description GB
date_source file_mtime
interval 5184000
plot {
title Wizard Hosting GB transferred
source wizard
data GB
legend Total Data Transferred
y_legend GB/Day
data_min 0
data_max 100000
data_type ABSOLUTE
I'll read up on the RRD tool.

That's odd.

Which version of Orca, Perl, RRDs are you using?

Is the orca.conf a standard orcallator.cfg file?  If not, can you include it
with your response?

Orca uses the RRD toolset to build, store and plot its data.  To have a
good understanding of Orca you'll need to understand RRDtool.  Check out
the RRDtool package in Orca's packages/ directory.
