OverTime is a software package that provides statistical web based graphs of selected network devices.
OverTime can either use HP OpenView (OverTime for HP OpenView) or IBM NetView (OverTime for IBM NetView) as a GUI front end to select the devices and to collect the
SNMP statistics or a stand alone version
that does its own SNMP collections based on the device IP addresses you supply (OverTime Solo).

What does OverTime do?
- For I/O devices like routers, switches and hubs, OverTime
uses SNMP to query the selected devices to see what
Input/Output interfaces they have and sets up a Round
Robin Database (RRD from Tobias Oetiker, the creator of
MRTG and RRDTool).
The RRD does
not grow in size once setup. Labels for titles,
legends and y-axis are automatically generated, but are
easily modifiable by the user. OverTime creates the configurations
for the data to be collected for it. OverTime updates an index HTML page
with the new devices. When you want to see the
information collected, you simply drill down from the
index page and OverTime graphs the collected data. An
HTML page showing the most recent and detailed graphs for
each interface on the device is displayed, along with IO
Errors for each interface and CPU utilisation on
supported devices. All of the graphs on this device page
are linked to more detailed views with four graphs being
generated that show the information over progressively
- OverTime is used to display PingTime
collected response time information.
- You can have your own data collections added into, kept and displayed by OverTime.
Any information, not just SNMP data, can then be kept and displayed. Maybe you need to know how
well your web server is running or maybe you need to count cars passing your front door.
With External Collections you can do these and more.
- Template collections specify what you want collected by OverTime for each kind of device.
Define what you want collected and how it should be labelled using the information from the device.
New devices are added or updated quickly and show relevant information for your site.
Customise OverTime to your specifications.
OverTime makes the most efficient usage of the host system's
resources by performing the least amount of work. No wasted
processing of RRDs or generating never-to-be-seen graphs.
