[rrd-users] brief question on DS update frequency

I have a RRD (step 300 secs) - and one RRA (12 PDP per row). It's a
GAUGE (min 0, max 60000).


If I update this DS *much* more often than 300 secs what effect will
that have - eg maybe every 20-30 secs. Will RRD "sort it out"?


Reason is that although I'm only wanting 5 min resolution on the DS -
the data provider produces output every 20-30 seconds and *stopping* it
doing that is tricky.


Apologies if this is a FAQ - I did do a bit of trawl through the
archives but nothing found.


Many thanks
