specific port traffic graph using mrtg


hello !
how is everbody.

i can configure mrtg for viewing total incoming and outgoing traffic , also for squid proxy server's monitoring.

but i need to use it for any specific kind of traffic like i want to view only incoming ftp traffic.

simply i just need separate graphs for some ports.

as i have searched i found a little hint that mrtg will read from iptables.(may be i have found wrong).

kindly please help me in this case.i will be very very greatful for u.

thanks for reading.
take care.

Google is your friend.
A quick google search would have spared you having to answer this question.
Search for:

mrtg graph specific port

Enjoy

i know its better to find a quick reply through google rather than waiting for replies on forum.
but i just found very very little hints.

I don't want to start a flame war ... But a good point was brought up; telling someone to google the answer to there question is the same as telling them... Your to #%$#%$#@ stupid to figure out the answer, buzz off.

It reminds me of the hostile nature of slashdot and the post's on there. The name of this website is linuxquestions.org which means he/she doesn't know where to go for the answer and is looking for help. If you don't know the answer you don't have to post, right? You could also have google'd the answer to his question for him and filtered out the junk and provided him with the closest answer.

I know this doesn't belong here but this exactly the type of attitude the linux community doesn't need. The nature of linux is open and community based, not an elitist club. IF it was an elitist club it would be called Apple OS or Windows.

Now I should point out MRTG and RRDTools are some of the hardest to use if you don't understand anything about oid’s and snmp. The documentation is also very poor compared to some of the products I've used.

Here is a link to get you started on answering your question, buts proabbly not exactly what you’re looking for:

Yes but at the same time the spirit of linux is being able to figure things out. Maybe it's as simple as someone not know about Google...or not knowing how to effectivly use Google. Just my opinion.

A quick google search would have brought you to:

http://216.239.41.104/search?q=cache...hl=en&ie=UTF-8

Which is done using the keywords I gave you.
And to

http://www.ee.ethz.ch/~slist/mrtg/msg05622.html

First one explains why it doesn't do that easily, and the second offers alternatives.
Search google more, there is a lot of info.

No I don't find that telling people to search google is an insult, it saves time for everyone, especially when the answers are in the first result.
