Just discovered graphs1090, and just installed. MIND. BLOWN. Really great work, @wiedehopf!! Starting to see the graphs!
Was wondering – do you have any plans to add support for automatically deleting data older than a specified age, e.g. older than 1 week, 1 month, etc? I do not see a parameter for it in the graph1090 config file.
I see that there is a way to bound the size of an rrd database by using RRAs (“round robin archives”), described here: https://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/doc/rrdtool.en.html. Example usage here: https://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/tut/rrd-beginners.en.html. Looking at your code, it appears that you are not using RRAs for that purpose, currently. Any plans to add this in the future?
Also, how much runtime overhead does this impose? I’m running on a very anemic platform – a Linux VM on an 11 year old Netbook with an Intel N450 1.66GHz single-core CPU running Windows 10 32-bit.
Found this discussion which answers the question about where the data is stored, and how to delete the data. Graphs for dump1090 -- my version with install script
