drraw

drraw is a simple Web-based presentation front-end for RRDtool that allows you to interactively build graphs of your own design. A graph definition can be turned into a template which may be applied to many Round Robin Database files. Unlike most other RRDtool front-ends, drraw does not take care of collecting data and updating Round Robin database files. Instead, it specializes in providing an easy means of displaying collected data, making it a great complement to other RRDtool front- ends.

Going crazy trying to figure out how to extract the drraw stuff! I unzip the downloaded (.gz) file which produces another file - this one w/o an extension. What do I do with the file?

Feeling like a bonehead,

Depending on what you're doing you can either store negative values in the rrd, or use RPN to multiply by a negative number in a CDEF, i.e. in the CDEF field say 'a,-1,*'. (replace a with the identifier for that line) Though in most cases I want 'a,-8,*', because the rrd is in bytes and I want to display in bits.

A put up a static copy of the edit page for a simple graph like this at:

Actually, I think it means that perl is running in taint mode, as it should be, and drraw isn't untainting some peice of data before using it. Sounds like a drraw bug. What version are you using, and is there a line number reference in the error message?

Hi there!! Really stunning graphs!

Could you just briefly explain how to get the negatives (below the line!)

I've also got another Q (I'm no linux expert!) I'm reading the data from directories created by Ntop; Every now and then the whole drraw crashes (refuses to draw any graphs) because ""bla bla bla... is still tainted"

That means theres a directory with "(" or ")" or some other fuzzy character in the name. Any suggestions what I can do (Save for wiping it) to make it accept those paths?

Thanks!

Check out my site at stats.net.cmu.edu/cgi-...

The drraw main page has a link there already...

I keep the graph creation pages limited to authenticated users, so maybe some screen shots of that would be useful.
