 Post subject: New Versions of RRDTOOL Are Out
PostPosted: Wed Mar 27, 2002 2:39 pm 
www.rrdtool.org


... for most OS Platforms, including WIN32/NT and MacOS


(the new win32 version seems to be working fine with Cacti)

to install the WIN32 Perl shared libraries:

cd \rrdtool-1.0.35.x86distr\perl-shared\

ppm install rrds.ppd

Cool...glad to hear it. I just compiled the new version as well and it too appears to work fine. Any new features I have to add support for in cacti? ;-)

Is there an option in cacti to add "--lower-limit 0" to a rrd graph?

I can set this value in the graph options, but when I look in the source
of the graph on the "graphs" page, the parameter --lower-limit <value> isn't listed there. (Same for upper limit btw). Is this done on purpose?

I'm using cacti 0.68a.

Thanks in advance!

It depends on autoscale option you are using. If autoscale is on then upper and lower parameters are not passed to rrdtool. I it is autoscale-max then lower limit should be passed to rrdtool. Because of bug in cacti it is not passed and the thread discussing this can be found here: http://www.raxnet.net/board/viewtopic.php?t=893. If you turn autoscale off then both parameters are passed to rrdtool.

Thanks :D

Works now. But hm.. the upper limit should autoscale. I should wait for 0.8, I think. 8)

i I did little modification in the code, so --lower-limit = 0 is included with autoscale-max :)

 Post subject: new rrdtool -> filenames longer than 19 letter??????
PostPosted: Wed Apr 30, 2003 5:08 am 
Hi,

is the filename length restricted (19 letters) by cacti or by rrdtool or mysql-db?
If the rrdtool restrict it, does the new one the same????

The filename length is not restricted by rrdtool. Restricted to 19 characters is internal data source name.

Hello,

thanks for info..
Could I change this restriction? Is it fixed in cacti 0.8?
The internal name is made by the external name - if the external name is too long the internal name can conflict with other sources.
Any ideas how to bypass this problem?

Thank you

Torsten

Normaly it is not a problem. Internal name is unique per each file. This means you can have several rrd files that use the same internal DS name. The only problem are multi data sources rrd files. In cacti internal names are based on data input script output parameter names. As long as your parameters have different characters looking at first 19 of them it is ok.

Anyway it's internal rrdtool restriction and you can't fix it.
