[rrd-users] MIN and MAX work as designed and there are good reasons for it

the reason for MIN and MAX only recording the 're-binned' values is
that anything else is pure randomnes, assuming your queries are not
100% equidistant ... this especially so with counters. For gauge
datasources min and max are illusions anyway, as you are
reading the data at some  point in time and have no knowledge of the
data-values at any other  point ...

so your quest should not be trying to change the way min/max
behave, but rather understanding why it works the
way it works ...
