Applies to RouterOS: v3, v4, v5 +

Summary

Graphing is a tool to monitor various RouterOS parameters over time and put collected data in nice graphs.


The Graphing tool can display graphics for:

  • Routerboard health (voltage and temperature)
  • Resource usage (CPU, Memory and Disk usage)
  • Traffic which is passed through interfaces
  • Traffic which is passed through simple queues

Graphing consists of two parts - first part collects information and other part displays data in a Web page. To access the graphics, type http://[Router_IP_address]/graphs/ and choose a graphic to display in your Web browser.

Example of memory graphs: Graphing-mem.png

General

Sub-menu /tool graphing


Common graphing configuration can be set in this submenu.


Properties

Property Description
store-every (24hours | 5min | hour; Default: 5min) How often to write collected data to system drive.
page-refresh (integer | never; Default: 300) How often graph page is refreshed


Interface graphing

Sub-menu /tool graphing interface


Sub-menu allows to configure on which interfaces graphing will collect bandwidth usage data.


Properties

Property Description
allow-address (IP/IPv6 prefix; Default: 0.0.0.0/0) IP address range from which is allowed to access graphing information
comment (string; Default: ) Description of current entry
disabled (yes | no; Default: no) Defines whether item is used
interface (all | interface name; Default: all) Defines which interface will be monitored. all means that all interfaces on router will be monitored.
store-on-disk (yes | no; Default: yes) Defines whether to store collected information on system drive.


Queue graphing

Sub-menu /tool graphing queue


Sub-menu allows to configure about which simple queues graphing will collect bandwidth usage data.


Properties

Property Description
allow-address (IP/IPv6 prefix; Default: 0.0.0.0/0) IP address range from which is allowed to access graphing information
allow-target (yes | no; Default: yes)
comment (string; Default: ) Description of current entry
disabled (yes | no; Default: no) Defines whether item is used
simple-queue (all | queue name; Default: all) Defines which queues will be monitored. all means that all queues on router will be monitored.
store-on-disk (yes | no; Default: yes) Defines whether to store collected information on system drive.


Resource graphing

Sub-menu /tool graphing resource


Sub-menu allows to enable graphing of system resources. Graphing collects data of:

  • CPU usage
  • Memory usage
  • Disk usage


Properties

Property Description
allow-address (IP/IPv6 prefix; Default: 0.0.0.0/0) IP address range from which is allowed to access graphing information
comment (string; Default: ) Description of current entry
disabled (yes | no; Default: no) Defines whether item is used
store-on-disk (yes | no; Default: yes) Defines whether to store collected information on system drive.
