[rrd-users] rrd at the ragged edge (updates every second)

So, of the two suggestions made:

> AIUI, if you use "N" (now) for the update time, then internally RRD 
> uses sub-second timing and you can update more frequently. It does 
> mean that your update "happens" when you submit the call rather than 
> when you take the timestamp, but for your setup I doubt that's a huge 
> issue.

> you can input time with millisecond precision, then this will not
> happen
> 1303164367.002
> 1303164367.393

is there any additional subtle differences between the two I should know
about before picking one or the other?
