Okay, so what if I have the following situation:

1. Create a RRD database with step of every 5 minutes.
2. Then I want to create one RRA for that RRD database to store 30 days
worth of data on every hour.

So is the worked out RRA format correct as below?


The value of "12" is derived from 5 minutes x 12 = 60 minutes (1 hour)
The value of "720" is derived from 30 days x 24 hours x 60 minutes / 60
minutes (1 hour)
