This script you run on the source host from the same directory where all those rrd files are there. I found this very helpful while migrating between Linux and Solaris.
#/bin/csh set all_files=`echo *.rrd` echo $all_files foreach file ( $all_files ) set base = `basename $file .rrd` /bin/rrdtool dump $file > /tmp/new1/$base.xml end
The do a `tar` with `gzip` as that will save lots of space and time while transferring data between machines.
And on the destination machine you uncompress and untar the file to an empty directory.
#/bin/csh set all_files=`echo *.xml` echo $all_files foreach file ($all_files) set base = `basename $file .xml` /opt/local/bin/rrdtool restore $file /opt/local/htdocs/cacti/rra/$base.rrd end
Hope this helps.
