[rrd-users] Multiple Updates Per Second

My thoughts exactly...rrdcached was supposed to decrease the numbers of
writes by storing the values in memory and then writing several updates at

For example, if we are sampling every 20 seconds and have our rrdcached set
to 120 seconds, then 6 writes directly to RRD files becomes 1 using

Moreover, it is rrdcached that is doing the writing, NOT rrdtool itself.
