That's correct, it isn't much.

One problem that I've seen often is that a request is made for data
that isn't there.  For instance, an RRA stores 1-hour samples and you
ask this resolution without specifying an end-time.  Assume that you
ask for data "--start end-4h" at, say, 16:25.  This means that you try
to fetch "--start 12:25 --end 16:25" with a resolution of one hour.
However, there is no data *in the 1-hour RRA* for time period 16:00-16:25.
This can't be done, what can be done is to fetch that data from another
RRA which stores samples every minute.  Result: you get the data with
a resolution of one minute.
