Then you'll get aggregated values ! You can't graph data that you
haven't got, so if you have aggregated the data then the results will
be from the aggregated data. Note that RRD **ALWAYS** normalises and
aggregates data - but if you are careful enough then you can make
this into a null operation.
What is it that you are trying to do, and what isn't rrdtool doing for you ?
