Doesn't seem so ; I have an RRA defined with the maximum definition
(discrete value collected every minute for one year).
rrdtool create modem.rrd -s 60 \
However, when I ask for the max value in a graph where one pixel isn't
equal to the step (here it's 400 pixels = 24 hours), it is
"normalised" even the min and max value and this doesn't correspond to
the data recorded. To get the non normalised data I must have one
pixel = one step (or a multiple) to get the correct maximum and
IMO, from a mathematical point of view, it makes no sense to normalise
the data when calculating the minimum or maximum.
