Step specifies the resolution of the data (e.g. one point every 5 
minutes).  Heartbeat specifies how often the rrd must be updated to avoid 
rrdtool deciding to insert unknown values.  (And for completeness,) xff 
specifies what proportion of primary data points must be present in a 
consolidation interval for the resulting consolidated data point to be 
considered valid (i.e. not unknown).
