Integrating RRD with Mrtg
Hi Does anyone have experience integrating rrd tool with mrtg. I've read up on it but i'm still not so confident about doing it. We're a WISP so I have a separate cfg file for each Access Point. Can I specify more that one cfg file in the cgi script or do I need to make a cgi file for each cfg I have.
From what I've read once u've moved to rrd, the only thing mrtg does is polling, rrd takes over updating and generating the graphs. They were saying that I need to setup a cron job to update the graphs but I'm not sure how to do that.
The other thing is where do I put in the use rrdtool, if i put it in the cfg files the next time I update and run the cfgmaker command the cfg files get re-wriiten,
cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /var/www/localhost/htdocs/mrtg/sm/fg12' \
--global 'Interval: 5' \
--global 'Options[_]: bits,growright' \
--global 'RunAsDaemon: Yes' \
--output /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg_rf_ap_sm_fg12.cfg \
This is what I run to make the cfg files, if a new cust is looking at this AP then I add the IP and re-run this file.
If anyone knows a good broken down tutorial that would be nice as well.
