Make graph for ping sensor to resemble ipcheck



I used to use Paessler IPCheck and it made some very compact and useful graphs to embed in other webpages. ex. http://www.jackalwireless.net/public/goodgraph.png

Now I am using PRTG 7 and I can't seem to make a suitably compact graph. ex. http://www.jackalwireless.net/public/badgraph.png That's the same resolution as teh first graph.

The biggest problems are the vertical time labels (they would take up much less space if horizontal. It would also be nice to get rid of the top label up top.

Are these things possible?

Currently all you can do is to set the fontsize to "0" (zero) and you won't get any labels and a larger graph. Or make chart a few pixels bigger.

Thanks. That did most of what I wanted.

Setting font size to 0 eliminated all the text. What I would like to do is to keep the labels on the left and right of the graph (latency in ms and packet loss in %) and lose the rest of the headers on top/bottom and the time labels on the bottom. Is there a way to select which labels/text appear and which do not? Also, is it written somewhere what the various parameters in the graph URL do?

Currently my URL looks like this:

in graphstyling.htm there is:

rotateLabels ="1"

But they do not have the expected effect. Changing the value of rotatelabels between 0 and 1 does change at all how the labels are displayed on the graph.

Sorry to dig up an old thread, but this is EXACTLY what I'm trying to do. The title of the graph is too long and takes up too much room, as does the whitespace around it.

However, without a scale at the side, the graph is useless.

Further, I only need the left hand side and bottom scale, not the scale on the right hand side.

I don't seem to be able to achieve this. I was rather hoping it might now be possible in PRTG9, but it seems not.

Why do some of the settings in the styling files not take effect?

Ideally I'm trying to achieve something similar to PRTG6 on our NOC display - with traffic graphs for many sensors (with scale and times!) on a display.
