File Naming

All files generated by collectl via the -f switch, both raw and plot, will always contain the name of the host from which they have been generated according to the following rules:

Never ever try to rename a file and expect collectl to be able to process it in playback mode. When running in this mode, collectl ignores any files that do not look like they were generated by collectl. It also verifies what appears in the hostname portion of the filename to match that which is recorded in the header.
