Please do NOT include RRA settings when importing! I am using company specific RRA settings and it is very likely that you won't like to override them.
This Graph Template will overwrite the standard Cacti Traffic Graph Template.
Advantage: There's no need to change existing graphs to the new layout.
Disadvantage: all custom changes to the standard Cacti Traffic Graph Template will be overruled.
This image shows the general layout of the Graph Template. Please notice, that outbound traffic shows up on the negative y-axis. The template makes use of opacity (alpha channel) available only with rrdtool 1.2 and up.
The marked areas show the specific use of this template. While the default cacti template shows “AVERAGE” only, you might want to see Peak Usage as well.
For the first consolidation level (Daily), you won't notice any difference because consolidated AVERAGE equals consolidated MAXIMUM. But all subsequent consolidation levels (represented by different timespans) show the AVERAGE consolidation (the colored areas) and MAXIMUM consolidation (the colored lines).
