Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

Any furhter info on how to do this? I keep reading that its possible but no one has a good description of how to.

This is an example of what I am looking for from Cacti.

Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

Not a good way to do this unless you want to spend many many hours creating  a bunch of pages using the Custom HTML Resource and manually entering in each graph link.  Alternatively, those with some .NET skillz might have a good way of doing it through some sort of programmy loopy thingy (technical term).

Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

Can someone from SolarWinds explain why this basic feature has not been integrated yet?

Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

I am quite sure that the response, understandably, is going to be that they have a laundry list of feature requests and this is just low priority compared to core functionality like UnDP operability/usability, more web integration, and performance enhancements.  To us, what may seem simple to implement, is often quite the opposite.  One thing I've learned being in charge of a small programming group at my company is that "nothing is simple".

bleearg13 said it.  Very few things are really simple, not if you look in the code.  For instance, in Orion, you have Node Details and Interface Details pages.  Those are built specifically to look at individual objects.  To show multiple interfaces on a page, you'd have to use a summary page.  You'd have to design and build an interface for selecting those graphs, and that will end up with lots of scenarios that have to be accounted for.  It gets complicated really fast.  Now, it's not actually hard; we like to say such things are straightforward, but time-consuming.  So then as blearg13 said, it's just a matter of when we choose to spend that time.  So far, we have prioritized other things that have made a bigger impact.  I can tell you that I genuinely feel bad that we haven't delivered this feature yet.  But on the other hand, I can't think of what I would take back in order to have delivered it sooner, because that's the choice.

So, it's coming, but not as soon as you (or I) would like.

Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

Can we Do it now , in Ver 10?. I really need this feature.

It is amazing that in a monitoring software of networks, you have low priority for Interface Traffics Charts. Prioritize things again.

Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

I agree.  This "feature" has been a standard in open-source network monitoring applications for over 10 years.   Unfortunately the DoD frowns on open-source and I have been tasked to replace it with Orion.  The lack of this "feature" among others in a high end product like Orion was unimaginable.  I expected that the charts to be much more configurable.  I find it disappointing. 

Just in case you missed it ...... the code for this "feature" and several others that we may find useful is OPEN-SOURCE.

That being said ... Orion incorporates many other features that are not available from said open-source products.  Overall I find Orion NPM 10 to be an outstanding product that, for the most part is well thought out, intuitive and easy to setup.  Thanks

Re: Multiple interface graphs per page

Any new info regarding this thread?  The custom pages aren't great because you have to go find the device to actually drill down into the graphs 😞
