the way I understand it is that we take the values from the current
sample and count the metric value.. so the phrase:

.. the metric computed is averaged over the whole sampling period,
not just for the sample point ...

does not make sense to me.. because we take the value of that
single 'sample point'.. I dont see any average sum in there

but my english might be borken and you mean that in a different way
