You requested the values for 'now' which was something between
"Tue Mar 14 09:00:00 2000" and "Tue Mar 14 09:05:00 2000" (in epoch time:
953020800 and 953021100). If you give 953020800 as start and end time you
will get only one value. If you request a value for a time which isn't in
the rrd file (*) you will get the value fetched before and after that time.

You can get the time of the last value with "rrdtool last".
