Displaying graph values as numbers when one moves the mouse over the graph.

Hi All,


I have installed Smokeping using the Debian packages, and I'm indeed loving its wonders, especially, the Multigraph functionality.

There are certain network devices that show a latency of 8-10 micro seconds, and are displayed right above 'level 0' of the X-axis. Hence, it becomes difficult to read the same. Is there a way to show the value as numbers when one moves the mouse over the graph?

Thanks,
Jim

Certainly silly question

Love the program always have, and set it up every place I go. On the
charts displayed is the lowercase u supposed to mean micro while the
lowercase m is indicating milli? As in microseconds and milliseconds?

If this is the case, is there a way to configure it so that it only
uses one or the other? - I would like to show consistent charts
without having to indicate which is which. While I understand this may
create a bunch of flat lines, I think it would be easier for the end
users looking at it.

Correct.

To my knowledge, this isn't possible with SmokePing itself -- at least 
not from the SmokePing config files.  However, SmokePing simply uses the 
rrdtool methods to generate a graph, and you can perform some 
manipulation of vertical scale data with rrdgraph.   So... if you were 
willing to modify the SmokePing source code, you could probably 
accomplish what you want (by changing the parameters it passes to the 
rrdgraph functions).  However, there is no out-of-the-box option to do 
this AFAIK.

RRDs::create ERROR: step size should be no less than one second

Hello

 

I am trying to setup smokeping on a HP-UX 11.23 Itanium ia64 server.

I managed to compile and install rrdtools-1.2.27 and smokeping2.0.9.

When starting smokeping, I am getting the following:

# ./smokeping

### fping seems to report in 1 milliseconds

RRDs::create ERROR: step size should be no less than one second

Note: logging to syslog as local0/info.

Daemonizing ./smokeping ...

#

 

 

Smokeping is running as a daemon, but no databases are getting creating in the datadir.

 

I have smokeping running successfully on multiple HP-Risc servers, this is the first install I'm doing on an Itanium server. How can I work around the Error "RRDs::create ERROR: step size should be no less than one second"

 

Any help would be very much appreciated

 

Thanks in advance

 

 

Annemie Witters

Graphs omitting exceptional data?

I am trying to collect statistics on a link that occasionally has ping
times easily five times its norm.  For example, the data I'm
interested in right now is:

9.99
10.0
12.8
13.3
14.6
15.2
15.5
16.1
16.4
17.3
18.2
18.6
20.7
35.2
89.9
383.7
443.9
509.1

The graphs that smokeping generates, however, seem to crop that data
out, and that's the data I'm actually most interested in.  The graph
that contains that set of data has its max at about 35, which means
that the top four data points are not shown at all.

How can I modify smokeping so that the graphs always show all of the
data?  I've tried commenting out the --lower-limit, --upper-limit, and
--rigid arguments in Smokeping.pm, and it moves in the right direction
(max 40), but the data is still not all showing up.

This doesn't (for mathematical reasons) answer your question exactly,
but if you search the archives you'll see something from me about
making the graphs logarithmic, which is how I view all my graphs.

Yeah, I tried that, and it doesn't help.  There may be a little more
visible data, but not much.

Also, I would really like these huge pings to stand out graphically as
much as they do when they happen interactively.

Thanks, though.
