Files and Directories.

 

The files and executables that make up OverTime Solo are kept in 5 directories. These files are explained below.

 

In the directory \OverTime\bin directory are the following executables: devgetupd, otadd, ot2csv, otdel. \OverTime\bin is also where you will find overtime.cfg the master configuration file for OverTime. Each of these files are explained below.

 

The CGI directory for the web server on the host machine holds the executables devdtl and devmst as well as PingTime if included.

 

The next directory is where the OverTime databases are stored. This directory (typically is \OverTime\data - which is the default under NT) holds directories, where each directory name is the SNMP System Name of the device being monitored. Within each of these directories are RRD files that house the data for that device.

 

The last directory is where the OverTime device configuration fiels are stored. This directory (typically is \OverTime\cfgs - which is the default under NT) holds the configuration information held in files with names like device1.mst and device1.col. device1.mst is a simple file that can be modified to change the labels of the graphs generated by OverTime Solo.
