Hi Florian, hi list,

the collection.cgi makes me think collectd uses minutes,
because there is the timeleft GraphDef which is captioned with
"Minutes" but does not include any CDEF :)

Does any other plugin rely on timeleft with native scale minute?
Otherwise i would suggest to add the CDEF's / 60 for the values.

Hm, good question. I would suggest at least 86400 sec (ergo 1 day).
My Powerware 5105 reaches nearly 8000secs @ 1% load.
