[xymon] Possible to sum rrd into one graph ?

I failed to achieve this. Actually, it doesn't display any graph at all. Hence, I send this new message. What is the best solution to be able to make ONE graph displaying the sum of all bandwidth consumed by my servers delivering media content ? I done this very simply with Munin so I'm very disapointed that its impossible to make it as simple with Xymon.

Thanks for help.

Easy, make a subdirectory like graph1 and in that subdirectory add symlinks to 
the different rrd files.  You can give the symlink an other name like
graph/vmstat-server1.rrd -> server1/vmstat.rrd

In the graph definition, you can match all vmstat-* files and voila, you can 
make the sum of what you want:

   FNPATTERN vmstat-(.+).rrd
   TITLE Accessed Virtual Memory
   YAXIS Size kB
   -b 1024
   DEF:avm at RRDIDX@=@RRDFN@:mem_avm:AVERAGE
   CDEF:sw at RRDIDX@=avm at RRDIDX@,4048,*
   GPRINT:sw at RRDIDX@:LAST:AVM  \: %5.1lf%s (cur)
   GPRINT:sw at RRDIDX@:MAX: \: %5.1lf%s (max)
   GPRINT:sw at RRDIDX@:MIN: \: %5.1lf%s (min)
   GPRINT:sw at RRDIDX@:AVERAGE: \: %5.1lf%s (avg)\n

I do this for adding CPU load on a pSeries with lpars so I can make the sum of 
all physical CPU usage.
