NAME
       cfetool create -	Set up a new Database

SYNOPSIS
       cfetool create name [--path|-p directory	name] [--step|-s step]
       [--daily|-d] [--weekly|-w] [--yearly|-y]	[--cfenvd|-c] [--his-
       tograms|-H] [--verbose|-v] [--file|-f filename] [--help|-h]

DESCRIPTION
       Creates a new database and, optionally, histogram file in a new direc-
       tory with the name given. If the	-p option is specified,	it will	be
       created as a subdirectory of the	path given. Otherwise, it will be a
       subdirectory of the current working directory.

       The -d, -w, and -y options specify the period over which	the data will
       span, and may be	combined to create multiple databases. If they are all
       ommitted, the default is	weekly.

OPTIONS
       --path|-p
	   The directory in which to create the	new database folder. If	this
	   argument is not provided, the current working directory will	be
	   used.

       --step|-s
	   The interval, in minutes, with which	the database will be updated.
	   If this argument is not provided, cfetool assumes a default of 5
	   minutes.

       --daily|-d
	   Create a database for recording daily patterns.

       --weekly|-w
	   Create a database for recording weekly patterns.

       --yearly|-y
	   Create a database for recording yearly patterns.

       --cfenvd|-c
	   Communicate with cfengine. If this option is	specified, cfetool
	   will	set classes understandable by cfagent. For more	information,
	   see the cfenvd documentation.

       --histograms|-H
	   Create a histogram file, to store information about the probability
	   distribiution of fluctuations about the mean	value over all times
	   of day.  Cfetool won't write	anything to this file for the first
	   four	weeks, as it has to have reliable mean values in order to ac-
	   curately calculate it.

       --verbose|-v
	   Print details of the	command's execution to the standard output
	   stream.

       --file|-f
	   Specifies a file which contains measurements	to feed	into the data-
	   base	in batch mode. Used for	testing	purposes. Each line in the
	   file	should be in either of these formats:

	   month/day/year hour:min:sec value

	   or

	   epoch value

       --help|-h
	   Prints a short help message and then	exits.

EXAMPLE
	 % cfetool create temperature --path /my/path --histograms --step 10

       Creates an empty	database and histogram file in /my/path/temperature/,
       ready to	store values over ten minute intervals spanning	a one-week pe-
       riod.
