rrdrestore - Restore the contents of an RRD from its XML dump format
rrdtool restore filename.xml filename.rrd
function reads the XML
representation of an RRD
it to the native RRD
The name of the XML file you want to restore. The special filename ``-''
(a single dash) is interpreted as standard input.
In order to support the restore command in pipe mode (especially when
using RRDtool over a network connection), when using ``-'' as a filename
the end of the file can be signaled either by closing the data
channel after the file has transferred (as would be the case when
using input redirection within a suitable shell) or by sending a
crtl-Z / newline combination. This allows one to send more commands to the
RRDtool server after a restore.
The name of the RRD to restore.
Make sure the values in the RRAs do not exceed the limits defined for
the various data sources.
Allows RRDtool to overwrite the destination RRD.
