Can you explain me how that works? The manual is not showing any example. All it says 'store-on-disk' can be set to 'yes', which is default and with me always 'yes'.Saving them to disk. There is an option to do that.
Wel, if they are 'hidden' how do I 'unhide' them? I don't even know what name these files would get....I think that the files are hidden but I can assure you that it works. In order the graphic system be stored you have to check "Store on disk" in every graph tou are using. An advice: put a period of saving to disk much longer like "hour" I think that It saves flash write cycles.
That's not a lot of help then... Can you than help me out how such data can survive a reboot?You can't unhide them. Stored data files is for system use only and are not accessible by users.
What a good suggestion! Like I haven't already done so. In fact, this tread already told I've done so. The manual is just not of any help here....also, it helps to read the manual:
maybe you can suggest on how to change the text to make it more obvious, that 'store-every' with options of 24hours, 5 minutes or 1 hour make sure that collected data is saved to storage (system storage) and this is done to prevent graphing data from disappearing.store-every (24hours | 5min | hour; Default: 5min) How often to write collected data to system drive.
[admin@OriginC] /interface ethernet> /tool graphing set store-every= StoreEvery ::= 24hours | 5min | hour
Yes, that's right, that's why you need to write a script that synchronizes the time when turned on.I believe what you are looking for is broken since after version 5.x, although I am not 100% sure.
The reason might be the ntp synchronizing time. The ntp clients takes a while to synchronise, thus causing
the graph to start at 1970 I believe.
Any way, as I said I am not completely sure. That is because as much as I like the graphing tool on RouterOS,
I never considered it as reliable, so it is better to store the data on some other server, like Cacti.
/ system ntp client set enabled = no / system ntp client set enabled = yes
/ tool graphing set store-every = hour
