[rrd-users] Is rrdtool right for my project?

I don't have experience with graphing 1 rrd file every second, so it is
kind of hard for me to predict if you'll run into trouble.
I update over 20000 rrdfiles every 5 minutes, so machinewise that's
probably harder, and it shows that one update less then 1/70th of a
On the other hand, why not try it alongside of eachother for a while ?
You already have a script/some code to fill the database, why not add an
'rrdtool update ..' line to that ?
Hope this helps, in some way. :)

Subject: [rrd-users] Is rrdtool right for my project?

I am looking at RRDtool and am wondering if anyone could advise that
this is the correct tool for my project.

Currently I am logging electricity data every second into a postgreSQL
DB and am looking at switching things up because it takes too long to
graph out the data at a later time.

I want to write to the DB and read from the DB any time without it
locking up, and it needs to be able to handle a lot of space
Can RRDTool handle this ?

Any help/comments would be welcome.
