/usr/local/rrd/bin/rrdtool create /path/to/data/dataset.rrd \
 DS:input:COUNTER:600:U:U   \
             DS:output:COUNTER:600:U:U  \
             RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:600      \
             RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:6:700      \
             RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:24:775     \
             RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:288:797    \
             RRA:MAX:0.5:1:600          \
             RRA:MAX:0.5:6:700          \
             RRA:MAX:0.5:24:775         \

(obviously going for the MRTG style format for now)

issuing the following command:

  /usr/local/rrd/bin/rrdtool update /path/to/data/dataset.rrd

results in "ERROR: could not lock RRD"

MY QUESTION:   "why?"  <whining a little>

I'd look at the troubleshooting docs if there were any....
