 Well, that's the idea behind rrd, and I don't like it. You don't overwrite
your security logs, why would you like to overwrite this data?
 Actually I believe rrd is a wonderfull tool and a work of art, it's just
it's not applicable to ANY situation and people seem to do that.
Goes like this: 
 what is some tool .... and plot graphs... 
Why it's mrtg/rrdtool. 
 It's great. But there is no alternative. And there should be.
