(Ab-) Using Round Robin Databases (RRD) with Perl

Held at YAPC 2008 in Chicago, IL, slides are available here, also this talk has been taped.

Round Robin Databases aren't limited to storing and graphing OS system parameters and network traffic performance. You can even use them for graphing your stock portfolio.

This talk gives an introduction on how RRDs work, how to use them in Perl in an object-oriented way (without getting lost in rrdtool's arcane syntax) and gives ideas for practical applications beyond traditional use cases.
