bindgraph and historic logs
I tried on the d-u list but got no response there.
I have bind on a box that gets fairly low traffic but is about to get
more busy, so I wanted to get bindgraph working so can can give clients
a visual representation of trends (other graphs for other software too).
Anyway, when I set up the server, I configured named/syslog-ng to log
queries to a dedicated log. Running bindgraph on this log (about 500mb)
causes it to crash. I started cutting it up into smaller chunks, and it
always crash if I take it back to December last year. From January this
year onwards it's quite OK.
I straced it, but didnt' learn much. I looked through the code, and
didn't see any obvious reason why it would have trouble parsing a log
that spans over two different years (the logging is only from September,
What limit am I hitting? Is it a file size, or does it get confused
with the dates? I'm running bindgraph-0.2a-2.1 on Debian Etch.
