[mrtg] Logarithmic values -

A few weeks ago I asked if anyone had ever seen or done graphs using a
logarithmic scale but didn't get any responses so I wrote a perl script that
would do the translation for me.
You might ask why we would want to graph things using a log scale - well, we
graph the errors on our interfaces and sometimes we would get a spike which
would completely kill all the other data pushing it way under the viewable
range.  Log scales won't do that.  One thing to mention, this will show the
LOG of the number on a normal scale, not the normal number on a log scale.
So your scale will still be 1 - 100.

Anyway - any questions, just ask me.  Instructions are in the source.
