Depends what you are trying to achieve.
If your application lends itself to having the data normalised to
fixed time intervals, stored efficiently, and plotted on good quality
graphs - then yet it may be of use to you.
If not, then no it probably isn't the right tool.
It would probably help you understand what RRD does, and decide if
it's useful to you, if you took a look at Alex's tutorials :
Specifically, "Rates, normalizing and consolidating" explains how it
handles data that doesn't arrive on nice regular time interval
