It would help if you added the error message (it's in your webservers

Anyhow, it might be this:

"LINE1:outbits#0000FF:\"Outgoing traffic\n"\");

You seem to have escaped the wrong "

Subject: [rrd-users] Correct syntax in RRDs module ?

Hi List,

I've been teaching myself Perl the last couple weeks and am now
attempting to write a cgi program containing several graphs. Could
someone help me with the correct syntax to use with RRDs. I did look at
the example but am still having problems. This is my first post to this


sub graph_router
    RRDS::GRAPH ("/usr/local/www/data/rrdtool/webrouter-day.gif",
        "--start -86400",
        "--vertical-label \"Bits per Second\",
        "AREA:inbits#00FF00:\"Incoming traffic\"",
        "LINE1:outbits#0000FF:\"Outgoing traffic\n"\");

At this point I'm not sure if it's my code or the module arguments that
are incorrect. Any pointers appreciated and thanks in advance.

Kind Regards,
