I'm trying to stuff data into a test rrd but I'm getting the following 

ERROR: illegal attempt to update using time 1047965402 when last update 
time is 1047965402 (minimum one second step)

Is this the correct usage of --template?  My understanding of -t from the 
man page is that it allows me to define the data source at the time I 
stuff values into a RRD, rather than be forced to stuff them into the rrd 
in input order (and possibly make a mistake).  It would appear that my 
usage of N is incorrect though.  Can someone point out my mistake or give 
me a working snippet from one of your configs?  Thanks
