Thanks for the info. I looked up some old discussions in the archive and apparently the newer snapshot version will work better. 
  Thanks for all the help. I will create a different post for some issues I'm having with the snapshot version. I would really like to get this working on linux only instead of having two platforms for this.

I'm doing the same thing as you, and am frankly frustrated at the amount
of I/O required by RRD.

have you got any specific tuning tips on how to set up the backend 
and what you have found works?

personally I think a RRD-type system could be designed which isn't as 
I/O intensive, but I haven't got the time
to invest in creating it.
