|Address to bind to and send SNMP packets from.|
|The directory in which configuration files are stored. See below for info on the various file locations.|
|Dont detach from the console and run as a daemon. In addition the debuglevel argument specifies what level of error messages to display. 0 being the least, 4 the most.|
|The directory in which to look for MIB files. The default directory is usually sufficient.|
|-M||Display MIB parsing warnings.|
|Specifies a location for the a process id file to be written to. This file contains the process id of rddbotd and can be used to stop the daemon.|
|The number of times to retry sending an SNMP packet. Defaults to 3 retries.|
|The amount of time (in seconds) to wait for an SNMP response. Defaults to 5 seconds.|
|-V||Prints the version of rddbotd and the locations of the configuration files, RRD files etc.|
|The default directory where to look for RRD files. See below for info on the various 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.
You can use the rrdbot-create(8) tool to create the needed RRD files in the appropriate places.
