[rrd-users] Re: RRA:MAX not acting like I thought when "multiple updates in a single step"

Alex, thanks for your 10000 feet ASL answer but I needed something
I read the source code and understood why it doesn't work. Every update,
during a single step, is always considered as a fraction of the step
and it pulls the overall value according to the fraction (the interval)
it is valid for. This kind of behavior is well suited for average
consolidation but lacks precision when MIN/MAX values are looked at.
I also noticed that a strong rewriting would be needed to achieve a clean
solution for what I thought could be simplier. A small/crude patch is
still possible (see attachment). I would appreciate someone to review it ..
Of course, as you mentionned earlier, the best way to achieve the MIN/MAX
I was looking for is to have a finer grain step (i.e. 1 second) But
in this case, I would get much larger RRD files which I really don't want.
