RRDTool wireless client tracking

Here is a sample of one of the tools I have recently built.
This graph is queried from a web based form which allows searching of access points by building, client, SSID, etc. The graph type is selectable and dynamically built based upon the user input to the form. It allows selection of various time frames for the graph including the sample above showing the previous month.
Also, the web form allows to display multiple client signal levels overlaid on the same line graph.
(I will have to grab a sample of this for another post.)
I haven't seen any RRDTool graphs quite like this that give a visual representation of wireless client movement from AP to AP, so I thought it would be nice to post this as a sample of the possibilities presented by the amazing RRDTool.
Thanks Tobi!


  1. I found very interesting this graph. Could you share the rrdtool create, and the rrdtool graph you have used to generate that image?

    Thanks a lot!

  2. Any chance you could post the configuration for that graph? I'm interested in doing something similar (i.e. changing the colour based on another parameter).

  3. What code for pooler this graph ?
