Hi Robert,

you may want to look at your sytem configuration ... especially
blocksized and cache handling ... how often to you want to update
these 100k rrd files per minute  ?

> solution when updating large amounts of rrd files?  We're currently
> exploring other storage media to help our writes become faster.  We are
> currently writing just under 100K rrd files and have distributed writing.
> We were thinking of modifying rrdtool to use a MySql database and would like

> it in the /lib or /contrib download directories of the main site.
