Hi Matt,

To get one ping per second, you need to make step and pings the same 
(i.e. 300 for both assuming default step setting).

Step is the number of seconds between RRD file updates.  If you make 
this number smaller, the RRD files become larger, and the I/O load on 
the system increases, so the correct setting here depends on your 
specific requirements, and the default of 300 seconds is a good balance.

Pings is the number of pings to run for each RRD update.
