when you are going to do your benchmarking, please consider to keep
an rrdtool process running in 'remote control' mode: "rrdtool -"
Perhaps it makes a difference.

The link is currently broken (I'll send a note to Tobi about this),
but http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/doc/rrdtool.en.html#remote_control
at least brings you to the correct manual page; please scroll down.

Also know that some significant changes were made with respect to
caching. You really ought to keep an eye on development if memory
consumption and caching is important to you.
