[rrd-users] Weekly collection problems

First I want to apologize if this is a stupid question, but I have read
through the rrdtool docs and I'm no sure I understand how the times in
the database work.  I am using rrdtool to collect in and out octets on
my router every 5 minutes for 36 days to measure bandwidth. This part is
working fine.  I then use a perl script to get my 95th percentile
numbers from the database which I currently pull weekly.  I would like
to store these numbers in another database for future manipulation.  I
run this script with cron every Tuesday at noon. The problem is that the
date\timestamp is coming up incorrect.  It shows the correct day, but
the time is  18:00:00 not noon, so when the script runs the 95th
percentile numbers are being stored in the previous weeks place.  I'm
using 604800 as my step.  

Any help is greatly appreciated.
