[mrtg] MRTG graphing via GRD file scaling

Remember that MRTG stores the traffic numbers in bytes/sec, but they are
usually displayed in bits/sec (if you have 'options[]: bits') which is a
multiplication by a factor of 8 at display time.  You may have omitted this


If you use the Routers2 frontend it will take care of this for you when
generating custom summary or combined graphs (a quick bit of advertising
there, sorry)

Salutation.  I'm hoping that somebody will have the answer, as I've been
digging through documentation for some time now and have not found anything
on the issue I'm having.


We have numerous routers being monitored via MRTG, the configurations are
all set and the polling and graphing is working fine. The issue is that
multiple individual graphs need to be combined into conglomerate graphs
using *.grd files and custom graphing scripts.  The graphs work, but all the
numbers and the graph scales are reduced from the original graphs by a
factor of 10.


Does anybody have any idea why this might be happening? Is more information


Thank you in advance,
