[rrd-users] creating the rrd

I am new to RRD.  I have been using MRTG for some time and want to start
to convert to rrd.  I am trying to make a database that has information
for daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly graphs.  I would like my polling
time to be 60 seconds.  I also want to keep track of three variables.
Here is the command I think is correct:

rrdtool create upsinFrequency.rrd --start `date +%s` --step 60
DS:inFrequency1:GAUGE:120:0:1000 DS:inFrequency2:GAUGE:120:0:1000
DS:inFrequency3:GAUGE:120:0:1000 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:1440
RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:60:168 RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:10080:31

I think that will give me a daily graph using 1440 60sec samples, a
weekly graph using 1 hour averages, a monthly graph using daily
averages, and a yearly graph using 1 month averages.

Is my thinking correct and, using that command, will I make what I am
looking for?
