Plotting data from logs
by Juliet Kemp
Very useful article on using gnuplot to plot log data information. I used it yesterday to look at the data on LDAP response rates that I've been collecting for a few weeks, and the suggested script (with appropriate minor changes) worked great. On the last line,
points may be better than
lines, depending on what you're graphing.
It transpires that the occasional blip in LDAP response rates here isn't particular time-dependent (although there's a couple of minor peaks at the two times when I know most people are around and doing stuff), so I need to consider the matter further.

I saw your comment regarding Gnuplot for log-analysis, and thought you might be interested to know that there is now a book on Gnuplot: "Gnuplot in Action". You can pre-order it directly from the publisher: Manning: Gnuplot in Action.
