    How are you creating CFlowd graphs? CFlowd doesn't produce graphs as

    Depending on how many connections off your network you have it would
    be worth checking you are actually getting stats from every outward
    pointing interface.

    I think the issue may lie with how the graphs are being generated.
    ie. there may be a flaw in the way the collected data is turned into
    the graph. Garbage In, Garbage Out as they say.
