I am moving somethings around on my network and part of which was moving my existing smokeping master to a new system.

ERROR: This RRD was created on another architecture

Little did I know that RRD graphs are architecture specific..  Meaning, moving a rrd graph made on a 32bit system to a 64bit system doesn’t work.  Seriously?

Anyway.  Thanks to Askar Ali Khan’s blog, I was able to do the migration.

Very simple process of converting the rrds to XML and then back on the new system.

Big thanks to Askar.
