You should really think twice to the power of two before doing this.

Sure, it may be easy to create an RRD with 2048+ DSes.  Maybe you have
2048 cable modems or so you want to monitor.  But what if this number
changes.  Are you going to add or remove DSes?

What is this OS that cannot cope with 2048 files? Or what other problem
are you having?
