Just joined the dev list, so not sure if this has been discussed before
or not, but I was wondering if there are any plans to replace the SVG
graph with something that doesn't require additional software?
Over at my workplace I've been doing a lot of stuff with ajax lately,
and one of the things I'm writing right now actually could very easily
be integrated with m0n0wall. If you would like a quick demo, take a look
The whole thing is actually a branch of a much larger project that I'm
working. I needed a good way of graphing data, and came up with that, if
you spot any errors, please let me know. From what I can tell, the SVG
engine that you are using right now just reads the CPU usage value from
stats.cgi. By changing one line of code from that demo, you can have a
graph like that output the CPU usage, Memory, or anything else for
m0n0wall. Could even do a live bandwidth usage output on the status
page. All as long as you can get some script to output the values you
need to graph.
Of course, the whole idea behind this is to create a way of accessing
the same information with as little requirements as possible. As long as
thing that may need to be done is some css tweaking. I've tested the
demo on Firefox and IE, so if it doesn't look right on another browser,
please let me know.
Would really appreciate it if you guys considered replacing the SVG with
something like this. I'd be happy to help with any more coding if you
think this is a good idea. The ajax engine I use on that demo is still a
work-in-progress and you wouldn't need anything as complicated as that.
Of course, you can modify all the graphics and format as much as you
like. This is more for proof of concept.
