Graphing large switches

Hi

I want to graph all our organisations switching, but as you can imagine its fairly tedious graphing each interface of each 24x switch and then making a custom graph to show the switch as a whole.

I've had a play with template graphs (after having created a template switch) but I can't seem to apply the template graph to the whole switch - only one interface.

Is there a neater way to do this or do I need to sit down and add loads and loads of interfaces manually?

Cheers

Alex

To clarify I want to create a graph like this for each switch, as well as keeping stats for each port.

There currently isn't a way to do this in an automated manner in NetMRG. Modifications to allow templates to work on a whole-device might be possible... would this fix your problem? The subdevice names would have to be identical between devices for it to work, and the same number of them. These requirements would be too steep for most multi-subdevice templates. So... the jury's still out on a permanent and scalable solution to this problem.
