"\n"; # And for the ultimately lazy, you could create and update # an RRD in one go using a one-liner like this: perl -MRRD:: Simple=:all -e"update(@ARGV)" bytes In 99999 method that is available in the RRDs module.
RRD:: Simple will croak and die if you try to create an RRD file that already exists. Specifying this value will determine the date and time that your data point values will be stored against in the RRD file.
If you try to update a value for a data source that does not exist, it will automatically be added for you.
The data source type will be set to whatever is contained in the method, which requires you to explicitly set the data source type.
For a brief amount of time it did leave my computer useless, because I could not mount any external drive (which I have nearly all my personal and other files on).
[Which, BTW, is currently at Beta stage.] This error is known on many distros and across a large time-frame, so this is by far not a new problem.
And at times the X server would not start, which I had to manually start via the terminal.What caused it I am still not sure, but it basically changed my permissions to an underprivileged user.I first tried this from here: Which turned out to not entirely fix the problem.Then as you read down, where someone had a similar problem but with the file.I tried something similar to his script but changing to . It does however create RRD files with a sensible set of default RRA (Round Robin Archive) definitions, and can dynamically add new data source names to an existing RRD file. Specifying the default data source type (DST) through the new() method allows the DST to be localised to the $rrd object instance rather than be global to the RRD:: Simple package. data retention period uses a data stepping resolution of 300 seconds (5 minutes) and heartbeat of 600 seconds (10 minutes), whereas all the other data retention periods use a data stepping resolution of 60 seconds (1 minute) and heartbeat of 120 seconds (2 minutes).
