ERROR: This RRD was created on other architecture

I can’t believe we still have such things in widespread software in 2009… But it happened to me on the BTS graphs I kind of maintain on people.d.o. It so happens that ravel was upgraded to Lenny, and switched from x86 to x86-64 in the process…

Also, it’s nice to see, once again, that the mailing list specially created to announce such changes, namely, debian-infrastructure-announce (which I still believe is useless as such announces should go to d-d-a) got no notification of this change…

    Afaik you can dump its contents to an xml file and import back.

    cstamas is completely correct. Be aware that the resulting files are very large, but if you have sufficient hard drive space, it’s easily done “rrdtool dump” in a for loop.

    Yeah, that’s a bug in the upstream bug tracker since years… Unfortunately nobody thought about taking care of it yet.
