Python bindings for RRDtool with a native C extension.
Supported Python versions: 2.6+, 3.3+.
The bindings are based on the code of the original Python 2 bindings for rrdtool by Hye-Shik Chang, which are currently shipped as official bindings with rrdtool.
Note: python-rrdtool is now the official rrdtool Python binding and shipped with the upstream distribution.
The easy way:
# pip install rrdtool
Note: This requires rrdtool and it's development files (headers, libraries, dependencies) to be installed.
In case you'd like to build the module on your own, you can obtain a copy of the repository and run
python setup.py install in it's destination folder to build the native C extension.
import rrdtool # Create Round Robin Database rrdtool.create('test.rrd', '--start', 'now', '--step', '300', 'RRA:AVERAGE:0.5:1:1200', 'DS:temp:GAUGE:600:-273:5000') # Feed updates to the RRD rrdtool.update('test.rrd', 'N:32')
