[smokeping-users] smokeping styled graphs from command line

Hi Darren,
Thanks for you answer, I'm very familiar in generating rrd graphs (atached a sample), but I'm having hard time creating the same look and feel of graphs that smokeping can generate, I'm taking about the smoke in particular. I got the rrd files from my smokeping installation, but after many tries and retries I'm about to give up.
So, I'm wondering if someone knows the right syntax for generating that same look from the command line.
best regards,

Hi Rodney,

The RRDTool docs have a very good tutorial, that includes a section on
generating graphs.
See http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/tut/rrdtutorial.en.html

That would probably be the best place to start.

You'll also find the rrdtool graph manual at

And there are also some good examples at
