[rrd-users] One writer, multiple readers

Hello all
In my setup I have one program writing to my rrd files
using rrdtool executable.
I have, until now, only had one program reading my rrd files
using rrdgraph.
We are, in the future going to also use CGI to run rrtdump
on the rrd files.
It is likely that the 2 processes will try to read the same
file at the same time (eventually)
Do I need to worry about multiple readers? Do I need
to implement some sort of reader lock external to the
rrd tool processes?
