(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
