Unfortunately - on HP-UX, you NEED to build the tools yourself from SOURCE. But try googling around if there are folks who've build depots or packages that they are willing to share.

Only LINUX seem to have pre-built ones -- assuming you don't need to customise.

Hi

I am willing to do that provided that I have a step by step procedure.
Please can you guys help?

Re: Help on setting up MRTG or RRDTOOL

The "STEP" by "STEP" procedure in any SOURCE-only distribution includes many README or HOWTO files that litanise:

- compiler needed
- compiler switches if any
- ancillary requirements to build

Generally the process is:

./configure
make
make install

On mine, I have a very old RRDTOOL built on HP-UX 11.11. I used HP's aCC compiler as I had a tough time using GCC. I could not port to HP-UX 11.31 - but luckily the PARISC 11.11 executables ran perfectly well on 11.31/Itanium.

hi Nandinho,

i have provided some prebult binaries of rrdtool for hp-ux 11.23 (PA-RISC platform) packaged as "depot" files.
the newest rrdtool version 1.4.5 is also available.

you may obtain the depot files and all needed dependencies from: http://www.filibeto.org/~aduritz/truetrue/rrdtool/

if you are running hp-ux on itanium, there will be an "experimental"/initial depot available for that platform (ia64, hp-ux 11.31) in several days.


greetings,

Stoyan
