Re: Better Graphing tools for Netview
I've resorted to rolling my own -- it's not that bad. The best thing you
can do for yourself is put all of the snmpCollect data into an RDBMS and
query against it to make your graphs. I've done some stuff from there
using perl/DBI with Gnuplot, and perl/DBI with Grace. perl with Grace
produces a better graph, and it easier to code (once you know grace).
I had some more exotic requirements, though. First was no involvement of a
Windows app like Excel or similar. Second was automatic (scheduled)
production of several output formats, including print, .JPG, and .PDF.

Subject: [NV-L] Better Graphing tools for Netview
Does anybody know of any software companies that sell better tools
to analyze netviews data in the form of graphs & stats? I dont
really like the Graph tool and before I start wirting a hole
slew of perl scripts and re-invent the wheel, maybe theirs
some company that sells such a product.
