19.4 The Graphics Specialist drraw

From the RRD databases, generated for example by Perf2rrd or Nagios-graph, the CGI script drraw creates interactive graphics—simple ones relatively quicky, whereas for more complex ones you need to know a bit more about the RRDtools.[200]

19.4.1 Installation

For the drraw installation, you need to obtain the current tar file from http://www.taranis.org/drraw/ and unpack it to its own subdirectory in the CGI hierarchy[201] on the Web server:

linux:~ # cd /usr/lib/cgi-bin
linux:lib/cgi-bin # tar xvzf /path/to/drraw-2.1.1.tar.gz
drraw-2.1.1/
...
drraw-2.1.1/drraw.cgi
drraw-2.1.1/drraw.conf
drraw-2.1.1/icons/
...

The directory created by this is then renamed to drraw:[202]

linux:lib/cgi-bin # mv drraw-2.1.1 drraw

drraw.cgi ...
