Link Quality

Version 2.0.2

Having modified my ipcop over the years I have learned to appreciate the open nature of GPL software and the power and flexibility of Linux and the various tools that complement it.  rrd-tool is one such tool and is used to produce the system and network graphs in ipcop.

Exploring and experimenting with rrd-tool can be fun and the internet will reveal some imaginative uses of it.  Once I'd mastered its basics by tweaking the provided graphs, I wanted to start from scratch and my link quality modification was the drive for that.

I began with a straightforward 'ping time' graph (details here):

I moved on, with a change of ISP, to a line speed and noise graph (details here):

and more recently, a graph that combines the above two (my latest version is here):
