Updated mrtg packages that fix three bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The mrtg packages provide the Multi Router Traffic Grapher (MRTG) to monitor the traffic load on network-links. MRTG generates HTML pages containing Portable Network Graphics (PNG) images, which provide a live, visual representation of this traffic.
Prior to this update, the MRTG tool did not handle the socket6 correctly. As a consequence, MRTG reported errors when run on a system with an IPv6 network interface due to a socket conflict. This update modifies the underlying code to socket6 as expected. (#706519)
Prior to this update, changing the "kMG" keyword in the MRTG configuration could cause the labels on the y-axis to overlap the main area of the generated chart. With this update, an upstream patch has been applied to address this issue, and changing the "kMG" keyword in the configuration no longer leads to the incorrect rendering of the resulting charts.
Prior to this update, the wrong value was returned from the IBM Fibrechannel switch when using the ifSpeed interface. As a consequence, mrtg cfgmaker failed to use ifHighSpeed on IBM FibreChannel switches. This update modifies the underlying code to return the correct value.
All users of mrtg are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
