A novice was learning at the feet of Master Daqd. At the end of the lesson he looked through his notes and said, “Master, I have a few questions. May I ask them?”

Master Daqd nodded.

"Do we record minute trends of our data?"

"Yes, we record raw minute trends in /frames/trend/minute_raw"

"I see. Do we back up minute trends?"

"Yes, we back up all frames present in /frames/trend/minute"

"Wait, this means we are not recording our current trends! What is the reason for the existence of seperate minute and minute_raw trends?

“The knowledge you seek can be answered only by the gods.”

"Can we resume recording the minute trends?"

Master Daqd nodded, turned, and threw himself off the railing, falling to his death on the rocks below.

Upon seeing this, the novice was enlightened. He proceeded to investigate how to convert raw minute trends to minute trends so that historical records could be preserved, and precisely when Master Daqd started throwing himself off the mountain when asked to record minute trends.
