So, am I to understand there's essentially two SNIPS boxes (one master

Well, the master can see the remote but not the network beyond the remote, which is what the remote is going to monitor.

I would like to put a probe or two on the second machine, reporting
back to the main SNIPS installation.

Now, I have had this working for current data, but I want to keep the
RRD data and the historical data.

Hmmm... ok, if it's "working" kinda, then I'm guessing you have network
connectivity between the two.  So you're just asking about getting the
RRD files to the main system??  Perhaps use something like rsync over
ssh to pull data back on a regular basis?  Would that solve it?

Yeah, I did consider that and that would work, but that means doing rsync over ssh every 1 minute as that is the granularity our manglement expect.

if the network link is "stable" I would try to NFS share rrddata,logs,data directories.

Guess I'll have to try it and see.
