Thread-topic: [nv-l] xnmgraph question
Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought xnmgraph was the application used for 
graphing data (in snmpCollect database). When you use the "Graph Collected 
Data: SNMP ..", NetView opens an xnmgraph window. Then you can "Update Data" 
from the File menu within the xnmgraph window.

Isn't xnmappmon used for Test menu items such as ping, demandpoll, etc.?

Hello Everyone.

NetView 7.1.3 on AIX 5.2

I wrote a little script to capture the output from a netstat command and output 
to a file in the format xnmgraph would like. The graph works fine but I cannot 
simply select Update Data from the menu. In order to update the data - I have 
to rerun the xnmgraph script. Here are the scripts and

Thanks in advance.

The script that collects the data:
while true
d=`date +%T`
y=`date +%m`.`date +%d`.`date +%y`-
today=`date +"%b %d"`
tot=`/usr/bin/netstat -p ip | awk '/total packets received/ {print $1}'` 
drop=`/usr/bin/netstat -p ip | awk '/packets dropped due to the full socket/ 
{print $1}'` echo "scale=5;$drop / $tot * 100" | bc | read test sleep 10 echo 
"2 0 $y$d $test" >> /tmp/time done

The output:
2 0 09.15.03-07:58:03 18.37500
2 0 09.15.03-07:58:13 18.37100
2 0 09.15.03-07:58:23 18.36300
2 0 09.15.03-07:58:33 18.36000
2 0 09.15.03-07:58:43 18.35900

The xnmgraph script:
day=`date +%m/%d`
exec /usr/OV/bin/xnmgraph < /tmp/time \
   -title "Percent - $day" \
   -lineWidth 1 \
   -units "Percent" \
   -mib "+2:Percent:::::::"
   -displayWidth 4d
