> do you know where i can find the source to compile on solaris ?? Visit www.rrdtool.org. If that site did not work, I would have used a web search engine for "rrd source" or "rrdtool source". After you unpackage the .tgz file, you should use "ls" and look for any file that says "conf" in it, or in capital letters, and investigate those a bit more closely for info.
