munin-graph [--options]


If set munin-graph will fork several processes to do rrdgraph in parallell. [--fork]
-n <n>
Sets the default number of processes. See also max_graph_jobs in the configuration file. A setting of 0 implies --nofork. [--n 6]
If set, force drawing of graphs that are not usually drawn due to options in the config file. [--noforce]
If set, only redraw graphs when it would look different from the existing one. [--lazy]

If set, view debug messages. [--nodebug]
--service <service>

Munin-graph is a part of the package Munin, which is used in combination with Munin's node. Munin is a group of programs to gather data from Munin's nodes, graph them, create html-pages, and optionally warn Nagios about any off-limit values.

munin-graph does the graphing. It is usually only used from within munin-cron. If munin.conf sets ``graph_strategy cgi'' then munin-graph does no work, instead munin-html generates references to the graphing CGI. Please see for more information about CGI grpahing.

It checks the rrd-files for updated values, and redraws the graphs if needed. To force redrawing of graphs (after setup-changes et alia), use '--nolazy'.

munin-graph does, as of now, not check the syntax of the configuration file.
