[rrd-users] cross-platform export?

Hi Alex,

When we migrated data from a 32-bit Linux -systems to a 64-bit systems, we synced over the rrd-files, and then copied over the 32-bit rrdtool executable as well, and installed some additional libraries to be able to execute the 32-bit library on the 64-bit system.
We were then able to do a dump with the 32-bit program, and restore it again into new rrd-files with the 64-bit tool.
And this was much faster than dumping them on the overloaded 32-bit system and sync the 10X size xml-files over to the new servers.

It's not a cross-platform export, but maybe that is enough to solve your problem (just calling different executables).

I'm new to rrd, but have gotten a request to import rrd files into plot.ly<http://plot.ly>. This can already be done by exporting from rrd to xml first, but it would be even better if we can omit that step. But I run into a problem when I try it, because I don't know where the file was created:
ERROR: This RRD was created on another architecture

Is there any way around this, so I can export rrd data on my system (ubuntu) regardless of where it was created?
