[Orca-users] Script to generate point in time Orca graphs

I'd be interested in it if it shows the actual data from that time and not the averaged data.  For instance, if I put in the begin and end dates for 7 Mar, 00:01 - 23:59 (or Mar 7 - Mar 8), will it show me the actual data for that day or would it be the averaged data for that time period.  I ask because I don't know how the data is stored in rrd.

All, it's been a while since I've been on the Orca list, so I don't know if anyone else has come up with something for this (google didn't yield anything interesting).  I've written a short perl script to generate point-in-time orca graphs, and I'm wondering if there's enough interest in this for me to check it into the subversion repository.

An example:

# ./orca_pit.pl

usage: orca_pit.pl [-u] [-p] -h <host> -b <begin> -e <end>

        Unless the -u option is used, begin and end times should

        be of the format:

        mm/dd/yy[yy] hh:mm:ss

        hh:mm:ss is optional, but if included, should be enclosed

        in quotes with rest of the date.

        -h Name of host to graph.

        -b Beginning of time to graph.

        -e Ending of time to graph.

        -u Use seconds since the epoch instead of the standard Date format.

        -p Preserve old rrd files (default is to remove).


$ orca_pit.pl -h host -b '05/22/2005 08:30:00' -e '05/23/2005'

$ orca_pit.pl -p -u -h host -b 1116775800 -e 1116872100
