Linear Graph

The Linear Graph displays two SNMP object value (Y axis) on a time period (X axis).

This Directory Plugin performs graphics with the results of predefined SNMP requests. The requests are sent to  the host to which the Plugin is linked. LoriotPro also explicitly uses this Plugin in some of its menus or in the MIB tree window.

Use the Setup option of the Window to configure this Plugin.

From the menu select:

Setup>Graph Color Setup…

This first screen allows you to setup the various color.

Then select:

Setup>Graph Polling Properties…

The window allows you to configure the SNMP and display settings.

The Plugin could display two curves on the same graph. In our example, the ifinoctets and ifoutoctets SNMP object has been selected. You should know the index number of the object if necessary (here Network interface have an index).

The first and fastest way for selecting the OID is to use the WIZARD by clicking on the + button.

Consult the WIZARD chapter for detail.

The configuration could also be achieved directly from the MIB tree. Select an object in the tree and from the contextual menu select OID Graph option. You will also have to add the index number if necessary.

The min and Max values set the Y scale upper value and the Y scale lower value.Check the box for activation your own scale values.

The Differential Check Box is used when the OID is of counter type. In this case the value displayed is the difference between the current value and the preceding value divided by the elapsed time between each measure.

The No Differential check box is use with OID of gauge type. Value of gauge type are directly displayed.
