    I am trying to use ntop and install it as per these howto:


    http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-install-ntop-on-rhel-centos-fedora-linux/

    (also rrdtools):

    http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-install-rrdtool-on-rhel-linux/
    (installed and tested as per instructions)

    in the a.m. howto it was not possible to use ntop at all, due to this error:

    ntop-3.3.9/
    autogen.sh --with-rrd-home=/usr/local/rrdtool
    [.. lots of information ..]
    configure: error: Unable to find RRD at /usr/local/rrdtool: please use --with-rrd-home=DIR

    error; note that even with the proper "DIR" information it returns such error AND stops.

    then I installed ntop with yum - all runs smoothly and ntop runs (apparently) normal here EXCEPT that, when asking for any graphic (network load, traffic) it doesnot show any graph, just this message:

    "NOTE: this page is not operational when the RRD plugin is disabled, misconfigured or missing."

    BUT.. these (and some others) are already enabled.

    So, I am stuck: HOW can I got those nice graphics? think that it is closely related with those "Unable to find RRD at /usr/local/rrdtool", but I have nor error messages nor log's pointing me to the right direction.

    Any hint, pls?

    Did you see any errors when you built RRDTool?

    no, but I managed to solve it and, using the debug tool got rrd to function.. but problem changed somewhat:

    situation now:

    a) the summary/network loads shows the traditional "NOTE: this page is not operational when the RRD plugin is disabled, misconfigured or missing." besides it is properly configured/activated (think so).

    b) if using the "info about" a particular host (all protocols/traffic, then any host) and click in the "historical data" icon (last line, right), it shows various empty chart, no data at all.


    so.. I am still stuck.

    That sounds like a permissions problem (like RRDTool is not allowed to write graphics to a certain directory). Did you check your log files?
