[mrtg] Graphing 3rd data

Would rrdtool be another option?  If I understand correctly it can plot
multiple data streams?  How do I change MRTG's front-end to use it?  Thanks


Ciao ?:-)

MRTG will gather data for two, and only two, data values per Target.  You
have a couple of choices.

1. Write your own frontend to display multiple targets in the same graph.

2. Use routers2 as your frontend and define a userdefined graph over
multiple targets.  Routers2 also takes care of the 95th percentile
calculations for you, although it does not display these as a line in the
graph, yet.





I have been using MRTG to graph incoming and outgoing data points but
wondered how I might be able to plot a 3rd data point (95%ile) on the same
chart.  I have the script that runs the 95% computation and am able to
"display" the value but now want to plot it on the same PNG that MRTG
generates.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.
