Version 2.19 of the Routers2 frontend for MRTG/RRD has been released, just in time for LISA08.

This is mainly a bugfix version and does not add any major new functionality.  People doing server monitoring using the Nagios NSclient and NRPE agents may benefit from the smaller footprint of the C version of the mrtg-pnsclient and mrtg-nrpe data collection plugins, though.

v2.19 23/10/08
! Userdefined graphs can now work if stack and mirror both set.  Really.
! Slightly better AI in determining default unit labels (bits/bytes)
! Bytes/sec now abbreviated to Bps and bits/sec to bps
! YES! Finally fixed the IE mouse popup in scrolled window position problem!
+ UnScaled[] can now take option 'n' as in MRTG specification
! Correct parsing of SetEnv to allow quotes
! Incorrect checks for RRD existance when userdefined graphs fixed
! -C option was still outputting HTML headers in some cases
+ %RRD% added to symbol replacement list
! Code workaround for RRDs v1.3.0 bug
+ Improve formatting in actuals popup
! Fix trend.cgi bugs
! Correct ifstatus comments
^Beta1 Aug 08
! Fix actuals popup if dorelpercent or aspercent options active
+ exportcsv now also outputs raw data if in dorelpercent mode
! Make dorelpercent work in compact summary pages
! Fix multilevel grouping bug under Windows
! 2-pixel x-offset position error for actuals popup under RRD 1.2.x
+ Allow the 'maximum' extended option to work with normal graphs as
  well as with userdefined graphs.  Should imply withpeak=n though.
! 'reverse' mode did not also reverse the value in the actuals popup
* Added link for buying the Book in the information screen.
+ Add C versions of the mrtg-pnsclient and mrtg-nrpe plugins

This will shortly be available at the normal place on http://www.steveshipway.org/software/

The Companion CD for the 'Using MRTG with RRDtool and Routers2' is also being updated with this new release (the previous version of the disk had v2.19beta1 of Routers2).  The new CD ISO image will be available for free download from http://www.steveshipway.org/book/ and can also be ordered as physical media from Lulu.com (link on the same page).  If you attend the MRTG BoF session at LISA08 then I'll be handing out free copies of the disk.

Also, thanks to the 43 people who have bought a copy of the new book or reference manual!  Let everyone else know how good it is!  If you don't have a copy, but want one, you can go to http://www.steveshipway.org/book/ for more details.  This is not available in bookstores or via Amazon (yet), so I need to do all the advertising myself...

Thankyou for your time,
