I would disagree. I believe that rrdtool is a great tool for analyzing
data from an apache access_log. I set up a custom apache log which had
all the fields of data I required, then parsed through and sent the
totals to an rrdtool database which has been running flawlessly for over
2 years. I keep one year of data in the database so I have trend data
over that time.
Here is the way I have the rrdtool db set up. This is a python function
which I send a few parameters through but you should be able to get the
gist of how it is set up.
def checkRRD( rrd = None, rrdid = None, daystart = None ):
rrdStart = "-b " + str(daystart)
step = "-s " + str(300)
cur_id = str(rrdid) + '.rrd'
cur_rrd = rrd_db_dir + '/' + cur_id
rrdtuple = (cur_rrd,rrdStart,step,
return (cur_id, cur_rrd)
Hope this helps,
