I spent a little time playing with the devel version (hacked in my own
95th percentile function then realized it already existed), and I
noticed a small inconvenience...

Instead of having to go from:




You should be able to do something like:

VPRINT:inoctets,MIN,8,*:"Bits %f"

Where MIN is a VDEF function and not a Consolidation Function, if I
understand this system correctly. The goal is to eliminate unnecessary
creation of a vname and thus avoid a cluttered namespace.

And just to throw in a bug report, there is a mismatch between the
rrdgraph_examples(1) manpage and reality, the PERCENTILE command is
documented as 95,name,PERCENTILE when in actuality it is
