I can't say how many I'm doing aggregate.. but.. on a single box basis,
we're updating 2000 files with an average of 10 ds's per rrd file, fora
total of 20,000 values, once a minute, and we have reasonable query
performance for displaying data when we need it.
On a server with 8 ide disks, raid 10, 3ware, CPU is usually not the
bottleneck (except for displays perhaps). Aveage write wait is about
3 ms (as instrumented by our collection scripts). Linux report our
I/O utilization at 25-30%.
We've pushed it much higher in the past, but that basically made all that
valuable data.. useless. Especially when things are on fire and you need
access to that data NOW.
Our observation is that as we add rrd files, load goes up significantly.
Adding more DS's to existing files, much more negligable. However, adding
DS's to files, is painful at best.
