Gandolf, is there any way to make those tables a little more pleasing? They are a bit crushed everywhere.

What are you referring to? Any pointer? I simply put in the html stuff rony sent me some days ago (with some hours of reformatting html so that drupal accepts it. I'd like a docbook2drupal filter).

Would it be possible to add some explanation for the new one-minute polling stuff? I haven't seen any documentation anywhere for it, and wouldn't mind giving it a try.

Surely. But this will turn out to be complicated. And personally, I'm afraid, that a documentation would turn less experienced users into using stuff they don't understand. And there are some drawbacks, especially when it comes to using 1 min polling with already existing rrd files. It will require a lot of tweaking around and fiddling with rrdtool command line tools.
Only for new setups, a quite straightforward walkthrough is possible.

Sure. I understand that. I can see why a howto-style document would be difficult or even dangerous, but I don't see *any* documentation.

In the data sources list, it has a poller interval per data source, but I don't see where that comes from.

In the poller settings there are two settings for poller and cron interval - what's the relationship between them? If the poller interval is 1 minute and the cron interval is 5 minutes, what happens?

Obviously the rrd tuning side of things is a complex issue, but having at least a little explanation of the poller settings would be helpful.

I have a new install for a specific customer to try all this stuff out on, but it would be easier if one knew how it was supposed to happen.

Perhaps I'll make up my mind to write that walkthrough for new setups. Going to be a busy weekend. Who will tell my wife?
