It will take some time, sure.

It is a bit of an hack:
1: create three new databases, DS type gauge
2: insert the numbers, min,avg,max each in their own database
3: dump the databases
4: merge the xml files
5: restore one database
6: use rrdtool tune to alter the DS type (if necessary)
And if this isn't possible for whatever reason: With the combination of
MIN,AVG,MAX and the new interval duration it should be possible to compute
two or three updates per interval which will produce the desired result.
