Yes and no.

You can have one second precision using RRDtool.

Ask yourself:
Are you able to collect the numbers that accurately ?

If you collect statistics every second and if you're only one
tenth of a second off, that's already 10 percent...


Much of what looks like rudeness in hacker circles is not intended to give
offence. Rather, it's the product of the direct, cut-through-the-bullshit
communications style that is natural to people who are more concerned about
solving problems than making others feel warm and fuzzy.
