[hobbit] Custom RRD Graph Alerting

Sounds like a good idea. Are you talking about watching for upward trends
etc? I use the RRD data to produce quarterly reports that remove
insignificant data using the Perl RRDTool module.

Subject: [hobbit] Custom RRD Graph Alerting


I have several custom graphs being built in Xymon and would like to alert on
the values in the rrd files being generated. I first setup the graphs just
to get some kind of idea for trending and now after a few months of graphing
I see what is good and what is bad and would like to alert. Has anyone been
down this road? Just looking for other ways to get alerts without having to
build and touch several systems custom scripts. I found a perl script on
cpan that should be able to do this. This may be a way to simplify custom
graph alerts by just having the Xymon client on the Xymon server run this
script every 5 minutes. Thoughts?
