For years my company has used an endless supply of free/home brew network management tools: MRTG, rancid, Nagios, ServersAlive, Smokeping, etc.
We finally ponied up the money for Solarwinds to replace all of this. So far we are happy with this.
The last thing to fully transition would be MRTG. Solarwinds NPM and MRTG are now essentially double graphing all 600+ of our switches.
We are happy with the graph style of solar winds and do not want to make the graphs more like MRTG.
What i am looking for is more of the MRTG Style Overview page for a device. Specifically i have attached 2 pics to help illustrate my point.
Today, if i want to look at any MRTG graphs i go to MRTG-NodeOverview (attached file). This lists all of my active devices i am polling.
Then i would click on a device to open up its overview page listing all the graphs for each interface on the box (see 1Node-AllInterfaces attachment).
Its really just a different presentation of the interface graph data than Solarwinds does. I guess all of our admins are just used to looking at it this way and keep asking for it.
Is something like this available? Anyone done this?
i have played with the custom html stuff and see how you can make 1 page with multiple graphs in it by grabbing the html code for the graph and inserting it into a custom page.
This is good but is not dynamic and would take me weeks of effort to do this for every switch and every interface we have.
i have to at least explore all options on this before i can shut off MRTG.
thanks for the help,
Orion Core 2011.2.2, NCM 7.0.2, NPM 10.2.2, IVIM 1.2.0
