The fractional part is a simple counter in reqstart/reqend, not true
Ok, for my use-case this is not a problem, but won't this break
If collecting events from slapo-accesslog filtered by

There's nothing to correct, this is working as designed.
The fractional part is only there to for disambiguating when multiple
operations occur in the same 1-second interval.
the manpage refers tho those fields as generalizedTime ("reqStart and
reqEnd provide the start and end time of the operation, respectively.
They use generalizedTime syntax."), in which the numeric part after the
period/comma is defined as a time fraction (in this case a seconds
