Usage

The first 25 lines (objects) of the Objects file will be read and assigned accordingly, i.e. line 5 of this file will be assigned to PingGraph pane #5. Any text pass line #25 will be ignored. The Agent is limited to 20 objects.
Format of this file is the following:
SERVER, LABEL, SENSOR
Where SERVER is an IP address or DNS name of a server or interface for ICMP, or a URL of a web service containing ID# of a device/service if needed. . This value is ignored when AGENT is selected for sensor type.
LABEL is how you want to label this object in PingGraph - if "Use Labels" is unchecked in Properties the server/url address of an object will be shown instead. SENSOR is one of the currently supported: ICMP, HTTP or AGENT
For example; to graph the ping results of a connection to internet you may want to ping yahoo.com, therefore specify:
YAHOO.COM, Public Internet, ICMP
For a web device/service Graphing you will need to write an ASP or PHP script checking the device status and returning a number between 10 and 120 or -1 if not accessible. For a HTTP sensor select "Randomization" setting, i.e. 25. This will create a ‘wiggly’ line instead of a ‘static’ flatline. Select 0 for no
randomization. For example to PingGraph a pda #1 status your Objects file should contain:
http://71.11.22.33/devicePingGraph.aspx?id=1,PDA01,http
To show data retrieved for host REMHOST via Agent use the following:
REMHOST, Remote Server, AGENT
