NAME
       rateup - Create graphic image files for MRTG

SYNOPSIS
       rateup -f <parameter file>
       rateup directory basename [sampletime] [t sampletime]
             [-(t)ransparent] [-(b)order]
             [u|a|g|h|m in out abs_max]
             [i/p file maxvi maxvo maxx maxy growright step bits]

DESCRIPTION
       rateup is a fast add-on to the great MRTG Traffic monitor. It makes the
       database file updates much faster, and creates the graphic image files,
       ready  for processing by PPMTOGIF.  It also reduces memory requirements
       by a factor of 10, and increases the speed of updates by a factor of at
       least 10.  This makes it feasible to run mrtg every 5 minutes.

       rateup  attempts to compensate for missed updates by repeating the last
       sample, and also tries to catch bad update times.  The .log file stores
       real  history  every  five  minutes for 31 hours, then 'compresses' the
       history into 30 minute samples for a week, then 2-hour samples  for  31
       days,  then  daily  samples  for  two years.  This ensures that the log
       files don't grow in size.

       The log files are a slightly different format,  but  convert.perl  will
       fix that for you.
