I have a rrdtool database created with:

>rrdtool create "$rrdfile" --step 60 DS:pressure:GAUGE:90:0:1100 DS:temperature:GAUGE:90:-50:100 DS:humidity:GAUGE:90:0:100

The samples are entered in 60s steps with:

>rrdtool update "$rrdfile" N:$P:$T:$H

After a computer restart, that made 2 missed samples, I noticed a
down-peak on the graph and did a rrdtool fetch to check:

>1239617640: 9.9586069400e+02 1.7373722021e+01 5.6504290012e+01

The same samples are also recorded to a text file to I could confirm
that it was not a sensor problem, the values feed to rrdtool where
between 996.1-995.8.

In >1239617880: 9.8159131106e+02 1.9585499172e+01 4.9668510483e+01,
where did come the 981.59?


rrdtool 1.2.30
