Projects / Mrtgconfig


Mrtgconfig is a Perl script which, in conjuction with mrtg and the ucd/net-snmp suite will allow you to manage a large number of hosts with mrtg. It automatically detects host types and supported performance values to be monitored and creates the configuration file neccesary for mrtg. It was originally designed for monitoring client servers from a Network Operations Center but could also be useful on a LAN.
