togather - a network statistics tool


togather collects any periodically data like network traffic and creates web pages with statistic graphs. togather typically uses SNMP to collect the data but can use plugins (external programs) so any method is possible.


togather consists of several programs and CGI scripts.

The main part is the gatherer daemon togatherd. It collects data using SNMP or plugins and stores the collected data in rrd files using rrdtool.

The CGI script tgweb.cgi creates web (html) pages with statistic graphs from the collected data. Graphs are stored in a cache so they are only rebuild when new data was entered in the database.

The daemon and the CGI script get their configuration from the same config file. The syntax of the configuration file is described in tg_config(1).

Another CGI script tgmibb.cgi implements a web based SNMP MIB browser. Some external scripts are provieded to compile MIB modules and to build an index for faster access.
