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).

RRDTool project 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.

What's New in This Release:
The pwd command for server mode was added.
Logarithmic graphs were revisited.
GPRINT can now access the time component of VDEF values.
DNAN and DINF are much faster through caching.
Many bugs were killed.
