Error calculating multitarget

Reported by: human Owned by: somebody
Version: 2.x Keywords:


I need to show aggregation of multiple interface. but while the single target graph is doing fine multitarget graph sometimes is giving wrong data. Is it something with MaxBytes?[] setting? the error prevails even after increasing MaxBytes?[] range.

I have attached sample config file and .jpg file.

The 'problem' is that in this mode, the counter values get added up prior to being written to the database. With fast interfaces there are bound to be integer overflows causing the effects you see in the chart.

As you are already working with rrdtool I would suggest to use the STACK function to produce overview charts instead of combined targets in mrtg.
