It will do, by design, if you feed in updates out of order.
If feeding data like that is a fundamental part of your system
design, then RRD is not the right tool for your task.
If you need to insert a screw, then a hammer isn't the right tool.
The fact that the hammer doesn't turn the screw isn't a fault of the
design of the hammer - it's simply a symptom of the tool not being
matched to the job.
It may be that a combination of tools is what you need. Perhaps some
short-term random access database that allows you to do inserts
out-of-order, and then take the data from that (after some suitable
period to allow everything to be sorted out) and stuff it into RRD
for long term storage.
Visit http://www.magpiesnestpublishing.co.uk/ for books by acclaimed
author Gladys Hobson. Novels - poetry - short stories - ideal as
Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
