Today I stumbled over this quote again:
“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to remove.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupery
… and this reminds me that I want to remove mod_rrdtool from the 1.5.x tree and replace it with a more flexible, external solution.
mod_rrdtool is a rip-off of mod_status and calls the rrdtool binary directly via a pipe. Problems:
- is has a pipe open all the time
- it doesn’t handle a restart
- doesn’t work with max-worker
