Traffic totals data lost by update?
Today I did an update from 22.05 to 23.01, surprise afterwards was, that all history data from Traffic Totals was gone.
Is that by design that the database is lost?
@fsc830 Ive just updated and also noticed this.
I really like to keep all the data and wish there was a good way to merge all the old backups together to restore this data but I have never found one.
I don't know why its disappeared but suspect restoring a backup is the only way to get it back.
This post is deleted!
Thanks for the answers. Then it seems to be by design.
Cant remember when updating from 22.01 to 22.05 if the data was also lost.
Was pretty sure it doesnt... but may I am wrong.
I had the same issue so I did an rollback (easy with pfSense as virtual machine).
I will try this again with having an backup to restore.
@overlord just make sure you uncheck ( I think ) the box that says about including the RRD data in the backup.
The restore will work as I can see the RRD data as XML in the backup.
I keep trying to work on a tool to get all the data from past backups unique it and sort it out into a new format for the latest backup which would put it all in but getting to what the actual format of data that is stored etc seems to be in a black box somewhere. Always stop at the same point.
Thank you, but I think it should be enough to save the "/var/db/vnstat/vnstat.db".
