[rrd-users] newbie: How to read RRDDUMP

Hello List...

The following dump fragment example of an RRA (for MAX 2hr values) has me 
confused (easily done!).  What are the two

 <v> values </v>

for each row?  I would expect one MAX value for that 2 hour period - 
please tell me my mistake.

And what does the <cdp_prep> stand for?

I've tried searching for this but only come up with the man page for 
rrddump which doesn't appear to go into such detail.

Thanks for your help


                <cf> MAX </cf>
