What you mean is weekly average on hourly bases. This is simmilar to nDAV
busy hour calculation in telecom.
I don't think that you'll be able to make such calculation directly in
RRDTOOL, because first of all the
only measurement unit is "seccond" and not a general unit like <hour1>,
<hour2>.. or <day1>, <day2>... .
But, as a workaround you can perform some queries hourly based, for each
day o the week and then do
your calculations by yourself and feed a new archive with what you obtain
to do the graphs. The only
thing that you should care is how create and graph the new archive because
you can't use anymore the
"seccond" as your measurement unit.
