in reply to RRD-Ping getting values on right interval

Instead of "sleep 45" you can sleep until the start of the next minute with Time::HiRes:

use Time::HiRes qw{ time sleep }; ... my $now = time; sleep 60 - ( $now - 60 * int ( $now / 60 ) );

You might need to subtract a fraction of a second from the sleep interval if the log entries tend to end in :01 rather than :00.
