Question RRA

#1 Post by javiercampos » Mon Feb 04, 2019 7:50 am


Does anyone know what is the approximate size of a rrd file, to store a 4-year history?

Since the rrd is currently created with a size of 96k

When you build up a Data Source profile in Cacti, it will estimate the size of the RRDfile on the fly. The number presented is per RRDfile Data Source. So, for things like Traffic Graphs that have a traffic_in and a traffic_out Data Source, you have to multiply the number by two.
Before history, there was a paradise, now dust.
