Class RrdDef

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.jrobin.core.RrdDef

public class RrdDef
extends Object

Class to represent definition of new Round Robin Database (RRD). Object of this class is used to create new RRD from scratch - pass its reference as a RrdDb constructor argument (see documentation for RrdDb class). RrdDef object does not actually create new RRD. It just holds all necessary information which will be used during the actual creation process

RRD definition (RrdDef object) consists of the following elements:

RrdDef provides API to set all these elements. For the complete explanation of all RRD definition parameters, see RRDTool's rrdcreate man page.

Adds single datasource definition represented with object of class DsDef.

Parameters:

addDatasource
