Subject: MRTG & Hobbit


I am using the built-in mrtg hobbit functionality (i.e. not using bb-mrtg)
I used cfgmaker on my server to build my mrtg.cfg. I am running mrtg against
a cisco 6509 switch BTW.

cfgmaker generated the mrtg.cfg with all the interfaces on the switch. A
little tweaking got it generating
graphs correctly. The labels on each graph look mostly correct (i.e.
.fa0_0_0 inbound and .fa0_0_0) {the . in front of
the label name is why I say mostly correct, I don't really care much about
that} so that is all good.

Here's the question.

The fa0_0_0 is useful for my network guy, but doesn't mean anything to me.
Looking at the mrtg.cfg
I see it has in it the info that would be useful to me. Here is a snippet
(question below snippet)

Title[mrtg.Fa0_0_0]: Traffic Analysis for Fa0/0/0 -- RPCFIR1
PageTop[mrtg.Fa0_0_0]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for Fa0/0/0 -- RPCFIR1</H1>
   <TR><TD>System:</TD>     <TD>RPCFIR1 in </TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Maintainer:</TD> <TD></TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Description:</TD><TD>FastEthernet0/0/0 OA Link Subnet15
   <TR><TD>ifType:</TD>     <TD>ethernetCsmacd (6)</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>ifName:</TD>     <TD>Fa0/0/0</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Max Speed:</TD>  <TD>12.5 MBytes/s</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Ip:</TD>         <TD> ()</TD></TR>

is there a way to either make the title of the graph match the title (or
description) from the snippet above (for each interface)
or just have text in the trends page do it? (i.e. Line from title above,
then show pic, then show title line for next graph, then that graph etc...)
