I'm using cricket and rrdtool 1.0.33 on an OpenBSD 2.9 machine.
Cricket has been collecting data for some weeks now. The
displays are exactly what we want...many thanks to the developers.

I plan on moving to a SPARC platform, so I need to do a
rrdtool dump/restore to recover the archive data.

The first problem I ran into was that "rrdtool restore" complained about
not finding the the min value, and sure enough the value in the xml
file showed unprintable chars, so I hacked a quick perl script to
"rrdtool tune" all of my .rrd files setting the min to "U".
That got rid of the ERROR: min value problem.
But now each of the .rrd files exhibit other errors to do with the xml
tags when I attempt to "rrdtool restore" from the dumped .rrd file

eg.  ERROR: No <\value> tag found
     ERROR: No <\v>  tag found

Nothing about "where" the error is, just that if found an error and

I didn't see anything on the mail archive (Of course I may have missed it
for this specific problem
./You ... take care
