Thanks, I'll give it a try next week. For now I've just stuck some
calls to rrdtool flushcached.
I don't know who maintains the site (I'd guess it'll be Tobias), but
I've spotted an error on
Near the bottom it gives the example :
rrdtool flush --daemon unix:/var/run/rrdcached.sock /var/lib/rrd/foo.rrd
That should be "flushcached" rather than "flush".
After this afternoon I'm getting back into RPN notation ;-) Something
that's sadly rather too infrequently available in other environments.
Visit http://www.magpiesnestpublishing.co.uk/ for books by acclaimed
author Gladys Hobson. Novels - poetry - short stories - ideal as
Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
