Well it looks like I was not being patient enough to see the graphs start
drawing correctly. It is working fine now. What I am wondering though, is
where I should be looking to find the targets to use (i.e. if I want to
graph system load, memory usage, filesystem usage .. also CPU fan speeds
..) I don't understand where those
'.' come from really..
