[side note: "this surprising behavior" refers to the subject of the

I'm not entirely sure about any reasons for that either. COUNTER and
DERIVE values are stored as a rate (i.e., a double) as well anyway. To
be able to calculate the rate, the last value is stored as well. This is
done using a string, though, so it does not impose any limitations

With this E-mail, I'm forwarding the issue upstream, hoping for an
explanation (or request for patches ;-)).

RRDTool with Java API

Hi All,
Is there any means of using Java API to fetch data from the rrd's created by RRDTool?
Let me explain in detail. The RRDTool is installed and generating rrd files in a unix system and i have been using perl and cgi programming to read the rrd files. But now i would like to use pure Java API to read those rrd's and collect data. Is this possible?
I would be really grateful if anyone can anyone guide me on this.
Thanks & Regards,
