 : Does anyone have a mathematical methodology for setting the rrdtool line
 : colors that they could share?
 : I am graphing up to 10 lines on a single graph and there are times that the
 : colors are just too close (at least for my... ahem... perception of color :
 : -)

I would first change the default background color from white to black.

The first thing they teach you in art class (or at least the first
thing they taught *me*) is that light colors come forward, dark
colors recede... so, with the default background of white, you 
are competing with bright line colors.

Having said that... I have no idea how to change the background 
color... Anyone know how?
