Anyone know of a free simple graph generator?
I like to keep track of our internet usage during the month, that way if we're going to go over the limit it is obvious, and I can have words with people ;)
I can go online and check what the numbers are, but to make it really easy for the family to understand a graph would be very effective.
I would love something that I can paste in the running total, and it graphs it – either bar graph or line graph.
@jevvv: If I understand it correctly, you wish to log your monthly internet usuage?
OK, two ways to go;
1. As you suggest, you can read your usage and enter the figures into a “graph generator”. Any spreadsheet will convert a line or table of values into one of a choice of graphs. Although not free, you may already have Excel, if not then any free office suite will have a suitable spreadsheet.
Softmaker Office 2008 see: http://www.softmakeroffice.com/
Openoffice see: http://www.openoffice.org/
Both can give you a warning when you reach a preset limit.
Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.
Those who will not reason are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not are slaves.
I'm currently using networx and am very happy with it. It monitors your network, and gives easy to ready usage, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, etc.
You can have it show individual users, or all users combined. I could go on, but you get the idea.
As for graphs, it gives easy to read information and you can also set up a custom report. Under each report is a bar graph showing the information.
Hope this helps.
@jayesstee: I have Excel but mentally I must be missing something: when I open the data info in Excel then choose Insert then Chart (after selecting the data range I want to use) it just shows one value :( Time to go do in-depth study to figure out what should be a simple function
@Mags: I have Networx, but so far I must have it set up wrong because the only computer it shows is mine, not the rest of the computers on the home network :(
