[rrd-users] Solution for consistent max values

'lo all...
I am looking at four graphs of the same data, hourly, daily, monthly and
yearly. I understand the reason that the max value in the yearly graph is
lower than the max value in the hourly graph, but my question is this. Would
the results be less than desirable if I chose to store my MAX consolidated
data points in an RRA every 300 seconds for a full year? This would result
in 525600 consolidated data points being stored in the same RRA. When I then
build the graphs the MAX would be consistent throughout. I wonder how large
the RRD file would be. Perhaps this is the standard way of collecting
maximum values and I have been misguided.
Any thoughts?
Anyone tried this? (I don't want to wait a year to find out for myself ;-)
