hi all,
1) is there a way to graph the IN and/or OUT sum of all router's interfaces traffic?

2) and a sum of interfaces belonging to different routers?
like a graph wich represents the sum of the router A eth0/0 + router A eth0/1 + router B eth1/0. is it too difficult?
thanks in advance

The short answer (and not very complete), is that yes, it is possible to do both of these things.

I assume for the first one, you want to create a traffic graph using multiple interfaces, but have it look like a normal traffic graph (ie, one green area for inbound, and one blue line for outbound).

The way we currently do this is by adding your inbound monitors from all your interfaces with no color (leave the field empty), and no label. This will keep them from showing up on the graph. Next, add a green area that is the 'sum of all graph items'. Next add your outbound monitors from the same interfaces the same way as your inbound, and then a blue line that is the 'sum of all graph items' as your monitor.

This will give you a graph that looks like one traffic graph, but is actually the sum of your others. You should be able to use this for both situations, I think.

maybe i'm not so smart as you doug, but i didnt understand -)
does i have to create a template graph with the inbound monitor with no color and no label? and then apply this to an interface?
tnx

You'll want to use a Custom Graph as this graph will be using monitors from different sub-devices.
