OK, I might have a try.

I briefly thought about it and might even try it, but having ~ 14 values 
for 24 entitites with 365*24*60 data points and a boss who might say 
after 1.5 years that he wants 3 years of data in the graphs might be an 
obstacle ;)

But I'll try both ways and hopefully won't forget to write up my findings.
