in this case... ;-)

i am monitoring bgp updates using rrdtool to visualise this. but it's neccessary to re-insert data sometimes (eg it data arrives late or because of some insertion delays, ...)

it would be nice to go back to a definite time starting inserting data again. i'm not thinking about working around this security feature ;-) but i think it would be nice if there where a new command like 'rrdtool goback myrrd.rrd -86400' to erase last day's data in order to refill it again.

how about adding this feature to rrdtool?

ciao tom
