[rrd-users] RRDtool plugin for collectd not creating the correct RRAs

Not sure if I should send this to the collectd mailer or this one, so
please bear with me if this is not the right one.
I am using the rrdtool plugin for collectd (4.9.2) and my collectd.conf
looks like this
I want my interface RRD stats to be collected on a 5 min interval, and I
want three RRAs
1. for every 5 minutes (this is the PDP)
2. for 1 day (average of 12 values, collected every 5 minutes)
3. for 1 day (average of 288 values, collected every 1 hr) (12*24=288
The maximum size of my RRA would be to store this data for 6 months.(180
When i restart collectd, I see that the rrd files are getting created with
the default 1200 rows and there is no difference between the 3 RRAs at all
(upon running rrdtool info). I tried specifying the RRATimespan on different
rows, tried giving RRArows parameter but to no avail.
As far as my understanding goes, the rrdtool create should be given with the
following parameters for getting what I want
rrdtool create /data/collectd/rrd/interface_stats.rrd
However, if I create my own RRDs using the create command, collectd is not
plugging the values into them. Can someone please help me out here?
