[smokeping-users] Data gets lost from the 360 days graph

The most likely possibility is that you are not saving the data in the .rrd files because the config file Database section has been changed.


Scroll down to: *** Database *** (mandatory section)

Does your config file have the 144 steps 720 rows section?

 # cons   xff steps rows
 AVERAGE  0.5   1   1008
 AVERAGE  0.5  12   4320
     MIN  0.5  12   4320
     MAX  0.5  12   4320
 AVERAGE  0.5 144    720
     MAX  0.5 144    720
     MIN  0.5 144    720

You can check how an .rrd file is configured by locating an .rrd file and running `rrdtool info <the file name>`

I've had an instance of smokeping running for well over a year now.  It 
runs perfectly apart from one issue: data keeps going missing from the 
360 days graph for all hosts monitored.
As an example, at the moment the graphs only show data from mid December 
even though smokeping's been running since well before that.
The other graphs - 3 hours, 30 hours and 10 days - always have all of 
their data.

These graphs are quite important to us because they tend to demonstrate 
the slow deterioration in quality of service on our hosting company's 
network.  They don't monitor it themselves and so we need these graphs 
to prove that there are issues.

Does anyone have any idea what the cause of this is?  We're running 
smokeping on an Ubuntu 14.04 server.
