Description John Eckerdal 2002-04-28 18:53:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020408

Description of problem:
The standard WorkDir location are used to store both the result and the
log-files generated by MRTG. The raw log-files can then later be downloaded from
any browser that can access the http://server/mrtg directory.
While not a security issue since the result is viewable in graphs it would look
cleaner if the logs were placed in /var/logs/mrtg instead since if MRTG
generates graphs for stacked switch there will be two files per connected
computer just for the logs.
And since there is a /var/logs/ present why not just add a /var/logs/mrtg and be
done with it?

From the MRTG reference:


LogDir specifies the directory where the logs are stored. This need not be under
htmldir directive.

Logdir: /www/mrtg/logs

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install MRTG
2.Watch where the log-files are placed (/var/www/html/mrtg/)

Actual Results:  Log files are placed in /var/www/html/mrtg/

Expected Results:  Log files are placed in /var/www/html/mrtg/
