do you mean `rrdcgi(1)'? I never used it myself, but the examples in the
manpage seem quite explanatory.. ;)

Well, the only output `format' you need to be concerned about is the
name of the `data source's, aka `DS', and the `consolidation function',
aka `CF'.

You can find the DS-names by looking at the homepage (it's incomplete,
sorry) and/or using `rrdtool info' (rrdinfo(1)). collectd creates RRD-
files with the following CFs: `MIN', `MAX', and `AVERAGE'.

Sorry I can't be of more help.. If this doesn't help, please tell us
exactly which script you're trying to use, preferably include an URL to
where it can be found.
