I know this may not seem to make sense to most of you but it does to me :-)
For various reasons I want to collect data in my own logfile formatted thus :
And then when I want to see a graph, copy that over to another host and feed it
into an RRD file, then graph it from there. But of course in doing so I get the
"illegal attempt to update using time" "when last update time is"
I did some googling and found a similar question in 2008 where Mr Oetiker said
this was not possible. Just wondering whether anything has changed since then.
Is there a way to do this? Basically do the following but tell it to
while read line
rrdtool update foobar-1yr-5sec.rrd -t diskiops:diskutil $line
done < diskperf-1yr-5sec.log
