I'm very new to Ubuntu. I'm using Nagios Graph plugin. That plugin needs perl RRD module to be installed on my system.

How I can install that?

Thanks in advance.

Try installing RRDtool.

sudo apt-get install rrdtool

There are lot of RRD perl modules available at cpan. You can install the modules which ever is needed for you using command

perl -MCPAN -e 'install RRD::Simple'

I just ran into the same thing. When installing rrdtool, you'll see a suggestion to install librrds-perl. Doing that solved my particular need of perl and "use RRDs".
