I have a super newbie question; I apologize if this is kind of lame.
I am reading through the rrdcreate documentation and I am wondering if
I might have found an error in the documentation or if I am
understanding something wrong. Basically I am readin the following
In the first example section, I don't understand why the first archive
says it stores the actual value. Perhaps this is just a mistake in
the documentation. It reads;
"A few archive areas are also defined. The first stores the
temperatures supplied for 100 hours (1'200 * 300 seconds = 100
I am wondering; is this sentence missing the word "average" between
"the" and "temperatures"?
rrdtool create temperature.rrd --step 300 \
Obviously I would not be emailing this list if I was not confused.
Sorry I am a real newbie here. I guess I don't understand why you
would have to keep more than one average. Is there only a single
value stored in the RRA (archive)?
