Is the new version ov OVmrtg ("OverTime") always GPL ?
Where can we find more info on it ?( BTW, "OverTime" is not a really good keyword on the web...)

See below some details on Solaris install.

Bug list found, installing OVmrtg 0.2 on Solaris 2.7, OV/NNM 6.10. OVmrtg comes from contrib directory  of mrtg 2.8.12.

1) in ovmrtg.pm, incorrect ping syntax for Solaris. Bypass: change "ping $router -n 1" to "ping -s -n $router 64 1"
2) index uses gif references (now unfashioned). Bypass:    change "gif" to "png" in index.
3) ovtgts (executable ?) doesnt run in solaris. thus, ovsho desnt run. No source found. No bypass written (what are functions of ovtgts?) 

Improvements (not bugs) done
4) Substitute local path of perl bin in OVmrtg's perl scripts (installation via installov.cmds)
5)"$buildht" script is not cronable in Unix. Bypass: wrote other sh scripts whitch a) modifies path b) sources $buildht 

6) Please note that ovmrtg 0.2 is published in HP's http://ovweb1.external.hp.com/nnminteract/README_OVMRTG.TXT,  in a windows flavour (setup.exe) )whith no reference to your name...,
(beginning of this readme below).

  I wrote OVMRTG. The original testing was done on HPOV 5.1 and there are some differences to 6.xx.
  Since then I now have a completely C version, called OverTime, that is more flexible than OVMRTG (you
  can graph any SNMP numeric values collected on a regular basis from HP Openview. The next release
  looks like it will have the Cisco SAA code in it (Ping MIB) for measuring latency from any cisco router
  to any IP destination.

  I would like to know why the current version does not run on Solaris. Can you give me more details?

  Thanks                        ...Laurie :{)

    I'm interested in Laurie Gellatly 's OVmrtg (version 0.2 found in contrib mrtg), which doesnt run on Solaris 2.7 and OV 6.1 (minor bugs related to Solaris implementation, ans an executable not Solaris/sparc aware)

    Does somebody knows a better, complete version, runable on Solaris ? Anybody interested in buglist ?

        Yurs, E.
