I am new to wonderful RRD world, and got confused by the question:
Let's say my rrd file's time step is set 300 seconds, but my sample script sends data every 60 seconds and update the rrd file 5 times (300/60) in each 60 seconds interval. What the final data will show up in the rrd file?
I got bothered by the question, and tried to simulate the case but got even more confused.
It turns out that if I run rrdtool update <file> time1:value1 time2:value2 .... time5:value5 in one command, then I got a average of the 5 values (GAUGE type variable for simplicity), but if I run 5 'rrdtool update <time:value>' at each interval, then the value is of no rules to follow.
Any experienced please shed a light here. Thanks a lot.
