[Orca-users] RE: Round robin archive?

I've used the RRDtool manually to make some rrd's and graphs. It all seems
to be working. I'm trying to follow Orca's Perl code, but it's a little
advanced for me.

That's odd.

Which version of Orca, Perl, RRDs are you using?

Is the orca.conf a standard orcallator.cfg file?  If not, can you include it
with your response?

Orca uses the RRD toolset to build, store and plot its data.  To have a
good understanding of Orca you'll need to understand RRDtool.  Check out
the RRDtool package in Orca's packages/ directory.
