Regarding the ShortLegend option,  Is it possible to split this for each OID ?
(As with the LegendI and LegendO).

I have been through the FAQ's etc. yet it is difficult to search on this word,
as any message containing an example cfg file is identified as containing

I am busy configuring different options of viewing NT server statistics and
incorporating different information in the same graph.  e.g. Disk space
available in MB and % of disk space available. (OID 1 = MBytes and OID = %).

Thus the question being, is it possible to specify a different ShortLegend for
each of these values. i.e. First value in Mbytes and second in %.   Just as is
done with the LegendI and LegendO values.

Just setting the Legend I and O values, with the ShortLegend set to &nbsp,
allows for a pretty accurate result,
Max   MB Free 2451.0     Average   MB Free 2372.0     Current   MB Free 2451.0

Max   % Free 60.0     Average   % Free 58.0     Current   % Free 60.0

Yet would prefer to have the Legends appear in the same format as all the other
graphs, by having a ShortLegend specified.
Secondly, with the high values obtained on some servers, I found it necessary to
utilise the ShortLegend and kMG options.

If one specifies the ShortLegend, in inserts this into both OID 1 & 2 and the
second value no has Bytes instead of %.

Max   MB Free 2451.0 MBytes   Average   MB Free 2377.0 MBytes   Current   MB
Free 2451.0 MBytes
Max   % Free 60.0 MBytes   Average   % Free 58.0 MBytes   Current   % Free 60.0

Any assistance will be appreciated.
