The synchronization doesn't have to be as high a resolution as to the
`nanosecond' (I realize you're being facetious).
I'm currently testing gear and my `step' is set to 60s. The script
I've written computes its `wake-up' to always be at the start of the
next minute. It takes about seven seconds to query the device so I
end up updating a value seven seconds after the top of the minute.
Next, my process sleeps until the top of the next minute.
I guarantee one metric collected per step.
