  I am trying to use rrdtoot command line to plot my hourly samples (one sample per 60 min).
  To create the RRD file, I used this command:
    rrdtool create test.rrd             \
             --start 920804400          \
             DS:cnt:COUNTER:300:U:U   \
  rd_update only accepts the 1st update command, but for the rest of updates, It gives me error and says that it is too soon to update.
  I want to be bale to update the RRD data file as much as I want (even five samples per second) and have RRD just average them and gives me one value per hour.
  What would be the proper rrd_create parameters, to create an rrd file for hourly sample and also be able to update it as fast as I can and RRD just stores the average value?
  Any help would be appreciated,
