the timestamp of the updates that go into the cache must be increasing.
Otherwise you'd have more than one value per second or even time that's
running backwards.

The most common source of this error is that one data set (read: RRD
file) is updated twice in one interval. So in your case I guess that you
have two rules with a comment ``POP3 Outgoing ALL'' or two such entries
in the config file.

To work around that problem, rename one or both of the rules, so they
don't have the same name anymore. For example, use
``POP3 Outgoing ALL eth0'', and ``POP3 Outgoing ALL vlan42''.
