$ fink describe rrdtool

rrdtool-1.4.4-3: Fixed-size "round-robin" database storage
 RRD is a system to store and display time-series data (i.e. network bandwidth,
 machine-room temperature, server load average).  It stores the data in a very
 compact way that will not expand over time, and it presents useful graphs by
 processing the data to enforce a certain data density.  It can be used either
 via simple wrapper scripts (from shell or Perl) or via frontends that poll
 network devices and put a friendly user interface on it.
