SYNOPSIS

rddbot-create [-nv] [-c confdir] [-w workdir] rddbot-create -V

DESCRIPTION

rrdbotd(8) is an SNMP polling daemon. It writes out the polled values to an rrdtool(1) database. The rddbot-create tool can create those RRD files for you.

rddbot-create uses configuration files, one per RRD, to determine where and how to do its work. Details of these files and which settings to put in them are found in the rrdbot.conf(5) manual under the CREATE SECTION heading.

By default th RRD files are created in the default work directory (see the FILE LOCATIONS section below). Files that already exist are not overwritten or modified in any way.

You can use the -n option to see the rrdtool(1) commands that would be executed. This is useful if you want to customize the commands before running them.

OPTIONS

The options are as follows.
-c confdir
  The directory in which configuration files are stored. See below for info on the various file locations.
-n Rather than create the files, print the rrdtool(1) commands that would be used to create the files.
-v Print verbose messages.
-V Prints the version of rddbot-create and the locations of the configuration files, RRD files etc.
-w workdir
  The default directory where to look for RRD files. See below for info on the various file locations.

FILE LOCATIONS

To determine the default location for the configuration files and RRD files run this command:
# rrdbotd -V

The configuration files for SNMP pollers are laid out in a directory tree, with one file per RRD. Subdirectories can be used to organize the configuration files. The contents of the configuration files are described in rrdbot.conf(5).

By default the RRD files mirror the directory structure and names of the configuration files, with an .rrd extension appended to the filename.

For example if your configuration files are in a structure like the following:

/usr/local/etc/rrdbot/
  gateways/
    gateway-load.conf
    gateway-traffic.conf
  temperature/
    inside-temperature.conf
    outside-temperature.conf
  machine-load.conf 

Then the default RRD files would be in a similar directory structure:

/var/db/rrdbot/
  gateways/
    gateway-load.conf.rrd
    gateway-traffic.conf.rrd
  temperature/
    inside-temperature.conf.rrd
    outside-temperature.conf.rrd
  machine-load.conf.rrd

The default location for an RRD file can be overridden by using the rrd option in the configuration file.
