[Orca-users] PNG's not getting created

Just to update on my problem. I did some more investigating developed a
theory that the TCP PNGs are only being generated for my first group. So
I stopped all orcallator clients processes and stoped the orca process
on my server. Then I completely cleaned out the HTML and the var dirs
and then restarted all the clients, waited 15 minutes for data to
accumulate and then started the orca script on my server. Result - the
PNGs for the  'Interface Bits Per Second' graph and all graphs after
that in orcallator.cfg for all groups, except for the first group I have
defined, are not being created. Further investigation revealed that the
rrd files (path /home/orca/var/rrd/orcallator/{group}_{systemname}/...)
for TCP and the ethernet interfaces are not being created.

Anyone have an idea about what might be wrong with my configuration?

Groups are defined in the orcallator.cfg like this (for example):

group server {

and the plot definitions for that group are right under it:

plot {
title                   %g System Overview
source                  server

After that, the next group is defined and then the plots, etc.
