Description

RRDRESTORE(1)                       rrdtool                      RRDRESTORE(1)



NAME
       rrdrestore - Restore the contents of an RRD from its XML dump format

SYNOPSIS
       rrdtool restore filename.xml filename.rrd [--range-check|-r]
       [--force-overwrite|-f]

DESCRIPTION
       The restore function reads the XML representation of an RRD and
       converts it to the native RRD format.

       filename.xml
               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.

       filename.rrd
               The name of the RRD to restore.

       --range-check|-r
               Make sure the values in the RRAs do not exceed the limits
               defined for the various data sources.

       --force-overwrite|-f
               Allows RRDtool to overwrite the destination RRD.
