This script you run on the source host from the same directory where all those rrd files are there. I found this very helpful while migrating between Linux and Solaris.
set all_files=`echo *.rrd`
foreach file ( $all_files )
set base = `basename $file .rrd`
/bin/rrdtool dump $file > /tmp/new1/$base.xml
The do a `tar` with `gzip` as that will save lots of space and time while transferring data between machines.
And on the destination machine you uncompress and untar the file to an empty directory.
set all_files=`echo *.xml`
foreach file ($all_files)
set base = `basename $file .xml`
/opt/local/bin/rrdtool restore $file /opt/local/htdocs/cacti/rra/$base.rrd
Hope this helps.

After all these months, I prefer not to use years yet :) I started formal French class. I am not sure how it will end up as it keeps me reminding about my Spanish class which I dropped out after 2 months. But for those 2 months I went on time to Foothill community college every morning at 8AM. It was different as medium of instruction was English now everything is French. It is not difficult to understand what the teacher is saying but it is very hard to form a full sentence correctly in french.
I applied for beginner (level I) but after writing the test last week I found myself at level II yesterday evening. This must be due to my wife who made sure I do well in this test. May be I should not have answered so much as a beginner but I did not want to miss this chance as this class starts twice a year only. I would like to thank Daniel (my office teacher) as well. May be I could have learned better at first place paying more attention to him and secondly if those (office) classes were at regular interval.
I have to admit the class looks good with the dynamic and hard working teacher. She looks like going to make sure her students learn to speak and write proper French. The most of the students are from Asian origins female who are working as house maid in Paris.
Well I need to memorize a list of verbs and their conjugation now for tomorrow’s test.
