Obviously, some lookup mechanism would be needed to figure out which server has a specific RRD file.
That would let me have multiple servers handling the load of updating the RRD files.
Server monitoring is made easy in Nagios because of the flexibility to monitor your servers with both agent-based and agentless monitoring.With over 5000 different addons available to monitor your servers, the community at the Nagios Exchange have left no stone unturned.please keep us posted, this whole performance rble keeps cropping up every now and then ...cheers tobi -- Tobi Oetiker, OETIKER PARTNER AG, Aarweg 15 CH-4600 Olten email] 41 -- Unsubscribe mailto:[hidden email]? subject=help Archive Web Admin solution is to use more disk spindles - or spread writes on more than one writer machine.I am willing to implement this, and if there is interest then it could be part of the RRDtool kit. subject=help Archive Web Admin Henrik, have you tried adding more disk-spindles to your server ?
Regards, Henrik -- Unsubscribe mailto:[hidden email]? if you want to go the network route, you may want to be looking at running rrdtool from inetd ..is already implemented ...With Nagios Log Server, you get all of your log data in one location, with high availability and fail-over built right in.Nagios Network Analyzer provides an in-depth look at all network traffic sources and potential security threats allowing system admins to quickly gather high-level information regarding the health of the network as well as highly granular data for complete and thorough network analysis using netflow, sflow, jflow, etc..So that's about 70 updates per second, and I can see that the amount of disk I/O happening on this server will become a performance problem soon, as more systems are added and hence more RRD files need updating.This is really not a problem with RRDtool itself, but more a question of how to run a system that uses RRDtool extensively.It might be beneficial to implement a way of storing multiple RRD files in one physical file, to avoid this overhead.
