[rrd-users] Is rrdtool right for me?

As you've already heard, RRDtool is probably not the appropriate tool for your needs.  You have a very small time interval (10ms) and need exact values (whereas RRDtool normalises the data to regular intervals).

RRDtool was designed to be optimised for network performance graphing and it does it extremely well, but it can't be everything to everyone without losing some of the benefits of specialisation.  I'd instead take a look at a more standard database to store the data and then some sort of generic graphing library to plot it.
