if you accquire your data at the sampling interval times then no
re-sampling will happen ...
* setup an rrd with a step of 300 seconds
this means it will save data at 0:00, 0:05, 0:10, 0:15, 0:20
* read data from your data-source. You get data at
0:01 - 1, 0:05 - 33, 0:09 - 2, 0:15 - 8, 0:21 - 0
* what how would you like rrdtool to act ? what data should be
stored in the slots ?
