RRDDUMP(1) rrdtool RRDDUMP(1)
rrddump - dump the contents of an RRD to XML format
rrdtool dump filename.rrd > filename.xml
rrdtool dump filename.rrd filename.xml
The dump function writes the contents of an RRD in human readable (?)
XML format to a file or to stdout. This format can be read by
rrdrestore. Together they allow you to transfer your files from one
computer architecture to another as well to manipulate the contents of
an RRD file in a somewhat more convenient manner.
The name of the RRD you want to dump.
The (optional) filename that you want to write the XML output
to. If not specified, the XML will be printed to stdout.
To transfer an RRD between architectures, follow these steps:
1. On the same system where the RRD was created, use rrdtool dump to
export the data to XML format.
2. Transfer the XML dump to the target system.
3. Run rrdtool restore to create a new RRD from the XML dump. See
rrdrestore for details.
