[rrd-users] Using rrd-files cross architecture

Hi everybody,

I'm pretty new in using rrdtool to read out rrd-files and generate 
graphs from it. I do have a really big problem. I create rrd-files of 
several hosts/services on a 64bit architecture and I would like to 
generate graphs out of it on a 32bit architecture but I always get the 
error, that the rrd-file was created on a different architure.
I read on some forums that I can dump the files and restore them on the 
32bit system. But this will take me a lot of time, because I have a lot 
of files furthermore there will be many I/O operations on both systems 
while dumping and restoring the files. And I need the generated graphs 
as fast as it would be if I just generate them calling "rrdtool graph". 
So dump and restore is not a good choice for me.

Do you have any ideas, workarounds or solutions for me?

With kind regards


Mit herzlichen Grüßen
