About 14all.cgi

14all.cgi is a CGI script for MRTG [1]. With this cgi it is possible to use
rrdtool [2] as database backend with MRTG. This makes MRTG much faster,
allowing much more targets. The cgi takes over from MRTG the part to create
web pages and graphics with the messured traffic. The graphics are created
on demand, only when needed and every 5 minute for the daily graph.

14all.cgi started as a hack to get into mrtg and rrdtool. Many people around
the world are now using it and keep sending me patches (thx) and bug reports
and wishlists.

The Future

I wont have the time to further improve the cgi, but I will maintain it for
some time and fix bugs. If you want more features tell me or the list about
it, maybe other people realise it and send me a patch.

You might want to check NRG [3] if 14all doesn't fit your needs.
