please note that calling the `write' target will not stop processing, so
values matching the `to_summpoller' rule will first be sent to the
`rrdcached' and `network' plugins and *then* the default target will be
executed and they will be sent so the `rrdcached' plugin *again*.

Other than the problem described above, your config looks okay, so only
the `current_connections' values should be sent via the `network'
plugin. Sorry, but I currently don't have an idea what the problem might
