Howto config MRTG so it doesn't log on certain moments??
I would like to know if it is possible with mrtg to not log the data on certain moments. This because every day There is made a backup of the server and the transfer of the backup goes with 8 Mbit/sec.
Though I normally only use 100-200 kbit /sec so my mrtg stats aren't very useful (all i see is the peak of the backup transfer). Is there a way to avoid this? Without using anothger nic to transfer the backup.
In mrtg.cfg, if you set the MaxBytes to whatever your normal peaks are, say a little higher (500kbps), it will tell mrtg to ignore any data higher than that. Then you won't have those huge peaks, they will be "chopped" off at your MaxBytes setting.
