You should be able to populate it on the fly. But, you can
always define an RRA that is not lossy. I have all my
RRDs set up with the average RRAs as well as a "non-lossy"
5 minute RRA that has been extended to 1 year. We back
these RRDs up at the end of the year. At this point, I've
got 5 years worth of 5 minute data, and regularly do
long-term analysis of our bandwidth consumption.
