Dear Mr. Steve,

I'd put my question on MRTG mailing list for mrtg-achiever script
non-functioning with RRDTool(pasted below.) I also sent the same to Mr.Kroto
who has invented that script but he too conveyed sorry.

We r using MRTG with RRDTool & 14all.cgi which does not generate HTML files
in WorkDir, which is the primary requirement of mrtg-achiever script. U told
to use "rrd-archive.pl" from  http://steveshipway.org/software/. I could
find only "router.cgi" there.

Can u pl throw some more lights on use of route.cgi & rrd-archive.pl to
Archive MRTG graphs in our case.

If you are using RRDTool, may I suggest that you use the routers.cgi
frontend?  This will then allow you to archive using the supplied
rrd-archive.pl script, which archives the .rrd files and allows you to query
them later, rather than archiving the MRTG-generated .png files.

Of course, I am biased, since I wrote it.  But you can get other's opinions
on the web forum on the support site at
