[rrd-users] RRD Locking Mechanism

I have been playing with an RRD solution to store cluster-wide metrics
into RRDs, and a web-based front-end to view graphs of these metrics at
any time. Metrics are gathered every 5 minutes, and so the following
question comes to mind: What happens if someone attempts to view an RRD
graph at the same time an RRD is being updated? Does RRDTool have an
explicit locking mechanism or does it depend on the file system to
handle that?

Thanks for you time,
