$ rrdtool info /var/lib/spong/rrd/database/perv.daft.com/disk-tmp.rrd
filename = "disk-tmp.rrd"
rrd_version = "0001"
step = 300
last_update = 988610989
rra[0].cf = "AVERAGE"
rra[0].rows = 576
rra[0].pdp_per_row = 1
rra[0].xff = 5.0000000000e-01

This says that the first RRA (Round Robin Archive) has 576 rows with one
datapoint (pdp) per archive point.

rra[1].cf = "AVERAGE"
rra[1].rows = 576
rra[1].pdp_per_row = 6
rra[1].xff = 5.0000000000e-01

This RRA still has 576 rows but it puts 6 datapoints per archive point.
These are consolidated (cf) by averaging.  Up to half of the values to
consolidated may be unknown without the average returning unknown (xff).
