I don't know why you're talking about a threshold. Nothing else
in your mail refers to this ?!?

This is only part of the entire rule set...  The most important one is
that the data must be in the database for you to be able to fetch it...

You try to fetch (988441200-986112000)/300 = 7764 rows.  How many rows
does your database have for the 5-minute RRA ?  Suppose you only have
600 rows (the default if you use MRTG-like RRDs), you can only ask for
600*300 = 180000 seconds worth of data in a 300-second resolution.
Any more and RRDtool will automatically override your resolution setting.
