Indexmaker can create web pages which display the status of an array of mrtg interface
status pages.

--output filename
set output filename (default: stdout)

--filter (title|pagetop|name)(=~|!~)regexp
Several filters may get set. Each filter can match agains the contents of a specific
section of the mrtg config file. Name refers to the bit in square brackets
(option[name]: bla).

Depending on the match operator chosen (=~ or !~) the match will be positive or

Note that some shells consider ! a special character. It may be necessary to type \!~

--title text
Set title of generated index file (default: regexp)

--bodyopt text
The value of this argument gets appended to the <BODY> tag. This allows you to set
document colors. By default this option is set to

bgcolor="#ffffff" text="#000000" link="#000000" vlink="#000000" alink="#000000"

--columns number
Display graphs in a table with number columns (default: 2)

--sort title|name|descr|original
Sort the graphs in the page either by title, by name, by interface description, or
leave them as is.

Add a sequence number to the title of each graph

--width number
Set width of graphs

--height number
Set the height of the graphs

--show day|week|month|year|none
Select which graph to show in the index page. You can supress images completely with

--section h1|title|name|description|portname
Select what to use as the title for each graph in the page. h1 is the H1 section from
pagetop, title is the graph title, name is the bit in square brackets (option[name]:
bla), and descr or description is the text from the Description field of the PageTop
(the Cisco description text if it's available, otherwise just the interface
description). portname is the "Port Name:" from pagetop.

Extract the hostname from the target line (this does not work if the target is a
mathematial expression). Prepend the hostname (and a colon) to the section if not
already present.

--rrdviewer path
If you have set the LogFormat: rrdtool property in the mrtg.cfg file, the index will
take this into account. The only thing you must tell it is the path to your grapher
cgi. (default: /cgi-bin/14all.cgi)

--prefix path
By default we assume that the file generated by indexmaker is stored in WorkDir.
If you want to store it somewhere else, specify how to reach WorkDir from the
place where the Index is stored. Note that you have to use '/' as path separator as
this will be used in urls. Speaking of which, you can even enter a whole url.

--autoprefix path
Requires --output. Try to generate the prefix automatically by comparision of the
path to the output file set with --output and the Htmldir set in the configuration
files. Particulary useful when multiple configuration files are specified, with
different Htmldir settings.

Default is logging in the generated page the command line, suppress with --nooptlog .
Useful if the commandline contains a complex --pagetop=string which could confuse
simple browsers.

--someoption-file filename
For any someoption which takes a string as parameter you can read the string from a
file by adding <-file> to the option keyword. The whole content of the file will be
read and used as the string. The file must exist.
