? Hi all,

when monitoring serveral - somewhat larger - catalysts I had to find out that rrdtool just displays the device-name and the interface description in the topic.

It would be very helpful if I had the opportunity to have the interface alias printed instead of the if descr. NetMrg knows the aliases and prints then in ther Interface Cache, however, I had not found out how to get them in the graph.

Any ideas ??

Thank you very much for your help.

With regards

Rainy

Yes, we do!

We do just this thing in our larger installations.

Goto template graphs and click on 'edit' beside the Lan Traffic graph. You'll want to change the [b25cb98606b]title[/b25cb98606b] field from
[code125cb98606b]%dev_name% - %ifDescr%[/code125cb98606b]
to
[code125cb98606b]%dev_name% - %ifDescr% - %ifAlias%[/code125cb98606b]

Hopefully that helps!
