[rrd-users] Data Source Name - 19 character limitation

Perhaps someone can help me, I have been given some information and I do not
know everything about RRDTool or MIBs so I will start be asking some


What is a Data Source Name in relation to RRDTool?

How does this relate to a MIB?

Are the Element names in a MIB used as a Data Source Name, or are they the
same thing?


The reason I ask is that I support an SNMP device, this device has some very
long element names within the MIB, 30+ characters, and I am being told that
this can not be used with RRDTool as the Data Source Names can only be 19
characters long.


Can someone please help me to understand this problem?


Many thanks,

Clint Cronwright.
