I’ve finally got just about all the network graphs I maintain using RRDtool rather than MRTG. I started doing this since MRTG isn’t good for graphing things with more than 2 sets of numbers. I started doing this because I wanted to track cable modem data. I figured while I’m at it, I should move other stuff too.
So much easier to read, and so much faster since your not spitting out graphics files every time the system polls. Not to mention the quality of the graphing image is much nicer. These are shrunk a little and they still look great.
MRTG is still running, but I think I’ll shut it down as soon as I can verify things are working the way I want.
