Today you sent me mail regarding [rrd-users] adding datasources to existing...:

*> I have several thousand RRDs that I want to add a couple datasources to, and 
*> I've tested out a script that seems to do the right thing.  I go through

NaN is the correct thing todo ... I guess I should modifie rrdrestore to
accept input from stdin ... may I add the script to the contrib area ?

you might want to consider to NOT add new rows to existing RRAs but rather
have more RRAs ...

I am interested in your 'large' site ... what performance do you see which
what hardware ... is anything visible from outside ?
