More Info
RRD is the Acronym for Round Robin Database. RRD is a system to store and display time-series data (i.e. network bandwidth, machine-room temperature, server load average). It stores the data in a very compact way that will not expand over time, and it presents useful graphs by processing the data to enforce a certain data density. It can be used either via simple wrapper scripts (from shell or Perl) or via frontends that poll network devices and put a friendly user interface on it.

There is also a Perl Module available for using RRDtool functions from within Perl-5.8.8 Use the lines

use lib qw(/usr/pack/rrdtool-1.3svn-to/lib/perl); use RRDs;

at the top of your perl program to make perl find the RRDtool module.
