[rrd-users] How does rrdtool behave if I store 5-minute-values for one year?

Hi All,

what I'm asking myself is how does rrdtool behave, if I store 5-minute-values 
for one year and nothing else?
What if I graph a timeframe of 2 months? Probably it would pick one pixel for 
every 2 hours. 

Will it use just the 2-hour-values and ignore the rest? 

Will it build the averages and maxes for that two-hour intervals internally 
and graph them?

If yes, then do I really need consolidated data in my rrd?

Will it find the max by every five-minute-value or will it just take the 
2-hour-values and ignore the values in between?

Best regards,
