Dear Eng.\ Farhan


I did the migration with aid of your advice. MRTG now is working (I can say
it is working because I see the last update date and time on each page of
the html output is getting updated each interval) 

But the graphs is only straight lines not a graph with ups and downs 

Attached here a screen shoot of what I got, which not that was getting


Any ideas for help?


Thanks on advance

Dear Amr


Its not a big task you can perform this activity very easly by follow few


1) just take a backup of yr cfgs , crond , .logs files or if your are using
.rrd base mrtg you also need to take backup of CGI files and rrds. make sure
the backup copy you hv taken not corrpted after traffering in into another
system. to ensure that just tar all files on existance mrtg srv and then
download it.


install a new mrtg if you are using centos mrtg is the builtin package just
install it.


put your tar archive there untar it and just place files and directories on
their places 


for further you can contact with me
