Not bad. However a few comments and suggestions.
1. I wish you had done it in HTML instead of PDF. The PDF
screen shots of the text pages are completely unreadable
at any magnification. The graphics screens are ok for
large fonts, but not text.
I agree and plan to make a very clean HTML page(s) in the
very near future.
2. The file is 21 pages totalling 2.1MBytes which methinks
is a rather large. HTML would have been much smaller and
more readable, even with attached screen shots. If you use
<Alt><PrtScn> instead of just <PrtScn> to grab screen shots
of the active window to the clipboard, you would not have
the clutter of the rest of the desktop that appears on some
images. I think that the "PrintKey" program you used has
the same feature.
I will also use a better screen capture utility for the next
version. I had it but didn't have it loaded on the NT box.
3. I really like the idea of putting the OID on the web
page and plan to do the same. No more "what's the OID or
Target line" type of questions.
4. The Exchange Server "Total Messages Submitted and
monthly graph looks odd. Do you really have 125,000
per second delivered or is there some kind of scale problem?
This is a message TOTAL from last reboot. There is a
another page for messages per second.
5. Methinks the top level menu is a bit crude. May I
The other pages look very nice but methinks you should had
scaled them for 800x600 instead of 1024x768.
We all run 1024 X 768 at work. I like that - sorry. I am
still making MRTG pages and plant to do a better index when I get finished.
I have only been using MRTG for 6 or 7 weeks.
6. The "Return to MRTG Index Page" link on many pages
to a dead link or typo error.
I am trying to satisfy 2 different points of entry to the
site (LAN/WAN and Internet). I will be cleaning those up. My typing is
very poor but I will fix the typos....
7. Methinks the http and ftp user counts should include:
in the mrtg.cfg as you're actually plotting the average
of users instead of the peak number of users.
Thanks for the tip. I am still trying and learning the
