I am going to put an ever increasing counter value into Graphite. I'm not sure what I should use for the aggregation method. I think it would either be "min" or "max". The default of "average" doesn't seem to make sense.

You can't do what you're looking for with any of the storage aggregations, which are rather limited, but you can display what you're after with the derivative() function at render-time.
