Yes, it looks at least so to me. Probably the same warning / 
details like for the global Interval option [1] (you need to 
scroll down a little bit) apply:

Interval Seconds
	Configures the interval in which to query the read plugins. 
Obviously smaller values lead to a higher system load produced by 
collectd, while higher values lead to more coarse statistics.

	Warning: You should set this once and then never touch it again. 
If you do, you will have to delete all your RRD files or know 
some serious RRDtool magic! (Assuming you're using the RRDtool or 
RRDCacheD plugin.)


PS: No need to use "reply all", reply only to the list is 
perfect, as I do filter e-mails based on the "List-Id" header line.
