Hi Brian,

So to be clear, on the clients you have data saved to
/usr/local/orca/var/orca/orcallator/<hostname> and this is current, but
the data on the server in /var/orca/orcallator/<hostname> is old?

Then just copy the missing text files from
/usr/local/orca/var/orca/orcallator/<hostname> to

If you have newer data on the server than the files you are copying over,
then the data will not be added to the RRD files and to the generated
plots.  To do this, you'll need to stop Orca, delete all the *.rrd files,
and run Orca again.
