MRTG - The Multi Router Traffic Grapher

Tobias Oetiker - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich


This paper describes the history and operation of the current version of MRTG as well as the Round Robin Database Tool. The Round Robin Database Tool is a program which logs and visualizes numerical data in a efficient manner. The RRD Tool is a key component of the next major release of the Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTG). It is already fully implemented and working. Because of the massive performance gain possible with RRD Tool some sites have already started to use RRD Tool in production.
