How large is your weathermap?

#1 Post by jantram » Mon Jan 11, 2016 10:36 am

Hello everyone,

I am working on a single-page alerting pane for the wall in our NOC.

I have a working map, but the load-to-browser size is around 17mb, wondering how that compares with other users large maps?

Mine are mostly in the 2-500KB range, for full HD sized maps (1920x1080), but they aren't very dense compared to many that appear on here.

You do have the option of JPEG instead of PNG. The lossy compression isn't *always* noticeable... that is in the Cacti..Settings..Misc page.
Weathermap 0.98 is out! & QuickTree 1.0. Superlinks is over there now (and built-in to Cacti 1.x).
Some Other Cacti tweaks, including strip-graphs, icons and snmp/netflow stuff.
(Let me know if you have UK DevOps or Network Ops opportunities, too!)

I guess I'm doing a great deal of OVERLIB graph pointing and INFOURL. My output folder for the map looks like this:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 13M Jan 26 11:38 3920c69daf11e0753edb.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 48K Jan 26 11:38 3920c69daf11e0753edb.png
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 14K Jan 26 11:38 3920c69daf11e0753edb.thumb.png

It doesn't look like much of that is redundant if I want to provide the functionality this way.

Wow! I assumed you mean the *image* was 17MB :-)

Could you PM the HTML file? There's probably some duplication that can be improved on...

Yes, I'll send you some detail on it.
