hi folks,

the Gnocchi dev team is working on pushing out a new serialization 
format to improve disk footprint and while we're at it, we're looking at 
other changes as well. to get a bit more insight to help decide what 
changes we make, one useful metric would be to know what your 
requirements are for storing data. as you may know Gnocchi does not 
store raw datapoints but aggregates data to a specified granularity (eg. 
5s, 30s, 1min, 1 day, etc...). what we're after is what's the longest 
timeseries you're capturing or hoping to capture? a datapoint every 
minute for a day/week/month/year? a datapoint every 10mins for a 
week/month/year? something else?

your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
