MRTG Viewer 2.0 : MRTG Front-end with Up/Down Status Database
and Email/SMS Notification
The MRTG Viewer is a front-end of the
famous MRTG tool developed by Tobi Oetiker. Primarily, this tool is
being used for monitoring the status of the network links
with SMS/Email notifications and web-based interface to easily see
which links are UP or DOWN. The MRTG Viewer serves as a frontend for
viewing available links and their corresponding graphs without
hardcoding the index page because it automatically discovers the
subdirectories where MRTG graphs are located. It also indicates if the
link is UP or DOWN based on the MRTG's timestamps and Ping connectivity
tests. The last update time of the MRTG graphs are being compared with
that of the server time to check if it is updating. If the graph
doesn't update, it may serve as a warning that the link is down. The
non-updating of MRTG graphs may mean that SNMP is not being received or
the node is completely down. Ping/Traceroute tool are included for
further diagnosis. The MRTG Viewer is also equipped with a notification
system using Email and SMS/Text messaging using PregiSMS gateway. To
