[mrtg] integrating rrdtool with MRTG on Solaris 10

You should download and install the following packages from sunfreeware.com :

libgcc-3.4.6 OR gcc-3.4.6 (if not already installed)

This gives you the RRDtool binary and libraries, but the Perl library which you require for MRTG is in the application path, not the site_perl path.  Therefore, you will need to use

LibAdd: /usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.19/lib/perl/5.8.7
LibAdd: /usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.19/lib/perl/5.8.7/sun4-solaris

in your MRTG configuration files to specify how to access it (and in the routers2.conf , if you use routers2 as your frontend).  This is the default install location from the sunfreeware package; if you have changed it then change the directive appropriately.

I am trying to install rrd tool on my Solaris 10 machine.
I tried installing from the sunfreeware website, installation goes fine and i was able to use commands like  create, update and get a speed.png
I try to integrate my working MRTG with RRD, but I am not able to execute the command: ppm install rrds.ppd
because there is no rrds.ppd
