Thanks for the reply. The config hasn't been changed for at least a
year. I checked the database section and it does match the config you
Running the rrdtool seems to suggest that configuration too. e.g.
rra.rows = 720
rra.cur_row = 532
rra.pdp_per_row = 144
The rrd database seems to suddenly lose the data after a few months.
Perhaps some weird process is causing the databases to be re-initialised?
