Today you sent me mail regarding Re: [rrd-users] Maximum Argument Length?:
*> Thanks for the quick response. I'm continously updating these indivdual
*> RRDs every 5 minutes. Rather than having to add another rrd for Global/
*> Region/Market views I just chose to add the values from their respective
*> RRDs. This potentially can get to be a large amount of arguments. Would
*> you recommend going ahead like this or start creating their own RRD now
*> and updating with the rest. These are GAUGE type RRDs so I don't run the
*> risk of Counter wraps. With 400 DEFs it's only taking 2-4 seconds to
*> generate the gif so right now it's not a problem but I don't want to
*> continue this route if in the future I might run into problems.o
*> One reason I'm inclinded to sum all the parts is because I will not lose
*> any historical data for a global view. Is there a utility, or how
*> hard would to write one, that could exract the samples from x amount
*> of RRDs and store the sums of each sample into one RRD?
there is the fetch call in perl which would allow yout todo this ... but as
I said, there should not be any limits in the perl module ...
any graphs available ?
*> Also, is there a way to get it to graph smoother lines on a step of
*> 3600? It's rather blocky otherwise?
not currently, the only possibility is to have a lower step ...
