Re: Network IP analysis?

MRTG is a great graphing tool for small applications.  Unfortunately 
the package does not scale very well for my purposes.  The snmp polling
and data storage in the logfiles are areas that I have problems with
using MRTG.  Are there any other viable alternatives to MRTG, or are
there any existing mods to mrtg that graph right out of a file rather
than polling for itself?   I already have the data I need and would 
like to reuse it.  If possible I would like to have a package that
is separated into 3 sections.  One section can be called upon to
do polling or gathering data out of a repository.  The second can
be called upon to do statistics runs.  The 3rd can be called to provide
graphs on demand.

> MRTG is a great tool that we use a lot - especially good if you want to offer traffic monitoring to customers. MRTG can get the stats from the customers port and display that as a GIF on your web server, accessed using the customers ID and password.
