I'm new to rrdtool. I need to modify our current rrd creation script 
which created by someone who no longer working here. What I need to do 
is to record number authentications (user logins) per minute. I need to 
create graphs for daily, weekly, monthly and yearly.
Can  someone please verify following script to see if It's done 
correctly or reasonbly?
The time in RRDs::update() function, does it needs to be same as step 
time, '60' in this example?
Is the hearbeat value '300' defined in DS reasonable?

Thanks in advance for the help.

rrdtool create auth.rrd --step 60 --start $TIME \
