[rrd-users] rrdcached remote socket status

I've been trying to migrate a home grown monitoring solution to use
rrdcached from directly accessing the RRDs. All works well with a local unix
socket to create graphs etc on the host machine for the RRDs but I'm
struggling with creating graphs via an IP socket from a remote machine.


Fundamentally it seems rrdtool on the remote machine needs both the socket
connection (via -daemon=) to flush...but also direct read access to the rrd
file itself in order to create a graph ? (This is on Ubuntu 12.04 using
rrdtool 1.4.7)


Is this correct - or is it possible to perform the rrd graph creation
entirely over the socket ? 


I've seen a few references to greater functionality via rrdcached if I
compile from source. Are there any "how tos" for exactly which flavours to
download and compile for those of us more comfortable installing packages ?


Thanks in advance for any pointers.
