Quandry with Data Source

#1 Post by Tybio » Wed Jan 30, 2008 9:21 am

Greetings all,

I am trying to add a simple SNMP OID based data template that puts data for 4+ OIDs into the same rrdfile. My problem is that the second and higher data source I try to define don't take OIDs.

My goal is to finally lump the 4 to 10 OIDs I graph for each router into 1 rrd and then have templates that pull from those rrd files.

I'm not sure if this is even possible...but I really need to clean up my rrd directory as it is now well over 20k files.

A data template can only hold 1 OID. If you want to poll/collect/store more than one, you'll need to use a script. Read in the documentation site on how you can make them (or search the forum).
