NAME

Catalyst::View::RRDGraph - RRD Graph View Class

SYNOPSIS

use the helper to create your View myapp_create.pl view RRDGraph RRDGraph

from the controller:

  sub routine :Local {
    my ($self, $c) = @_;

    $c->stash->{'graph'} = [
            "--lower-limit", "0",
            "--start", "end-1d",
            "--vertical-label", "My Label",
            "--height", 600,
            "--width", 300,
            "DEF:Data=/path/to/rrd.rrd:data:AVERAGE",
            "AREA:Data#0000FF:Data "
    ];
    $c->forward('MyApp::View::RRDGraph');
  }

DESCRIPTION

This view generates RRD graph images from the graph defintion placed in the stash. The controller is responsable of placing an ARRAYREF in $c-stash->{'graph'}> with the same data as to generate a graph with the RRDs module, except for filename, that will be automatically generated by the view.

It doesn't depend on RRDs, but does need it to work (and for the tests to pass). You can install RRDs, for instance, using Alien::RRDtool, or compiling it manually from http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/

CONFIGURATION

Configurations for the view are:

IMG_DIR

Directory to generate temporary image files. Defaults to /tmp/

IMG_FORMAT

Image format for the generated files. 'PNG' by default.

ON_ERROR_SERVE

On error, if this config value is set, the file to which it points will be served (so you can serve an "error image" file to the user). Alternately, it can be set to a code reference, that will called with $self, $c and $error. You can then generate your own content in this handler. Default (leaving undefined) is to throw an expception.

See http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/doc/rrdgraph.en.html for more info.
