Check MySQL tables.
Are all rra files not being updates or just some?
Check permission son the rra folder.

777 will cause Selinux to block access to the files.
The rra should have 755, and the files 644 while owned by cacti which is presumably what your polling cron job runs as.

The Selinux was disabled after cacti stop graph,. I have tried 644  permission but Apache is forbidden the access folder Cacti , when change to 744 works  and the folder 'RRA' have set permission  to 644 .

I have ever executed the jobs  using the user  root  never show any issue. At moment I don´t  belive necessary change user of jobs to cacti.

I saw the message at  Technical Support

ERROR: Installed RRDTool version does not match configured version.
Please visit the Configuration Settings and select the correct RRDTool Utility Versio

How can I reinstall RRDTOOL on Cacti  ?
aspenbrAuthor Commented:
I found the place  , have changed version to 1.3.8
This is within the settings/configuration.
I.e. you say retool 1.4 while the installed version is 1.3.
Run rrdtool --version
