Some of the SNMP objects are best monitored by displaying their changing values in a graph. Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold v11's SNMP Graphing Utility lets you select one or more SNMP objects and show a real-time graph of their values. You can also graph the sum or difference of two or more SNMP objects. You can save a graph to a file and later open the file and resume graphing the SNMP objects.
To use the SNMP Graphing Utility:
The Graphing Utility starts the default graph file,
GRAPH.wgg. This graph contains one graph object (timer) that shows the time elapsed between the reported SNMP values. You can change the timer properties.
By default, the Utility graphs the change between each reported value of the SNMP object. You can set the utility to graph only the reported values for an object in Edit > Item Properties > Absolute values.
The graph window shows a line graph for each SNMP object added to the graph. Up to 20 SNMP objects can be active on the graph. You can set the color and line width to distinguish each graphed object.
