more often than every 5 minutes.

I didn't try to disabuse anyone of any notion - other than the fact that I
didn't need help implementing 95th percentile - in hopes that they would
answer the survey. Even without trying to answer I ended up in far too
many conversations :-(
Note: If you're small enough that you're still using MRTG, you can likely
just ignore everything I just wrote.
Er... MRTG out of the box. Some people have extended MRTG/rrdtool usage
extensively. You can get a lot of use out of RRDTool if you are willing to
write your own tools to (ab)use it.
But yes, generally true ;-)
