I have my MRTG up and running and it is graphing just fine. The problem I have is on the graph the time is off by three hours where it shows the time last updated and also on the bottom right hand corner of the graph. The time on the MRTG server is correct. Where do I go to correct this.

Check the time on the device you are monitoring.

Make sure you server and the device are in same time zone.

Check this variable in the MRTG cfg file.

Timezone[myrouter]: Japan


This should be your country code.

if the time on the router is setup properly you can run cfgmaker again and it will append the right country and time to the config.

Thanks

This problem is for all graphs on all devices about 15 of them. I looked at several of the config files and there is nothing stating country or timezone in any of them.

Time is pulled from the server for mrtg. Make sure that everything on the server are in sync with timezone and time.  I usually use an NTP server to do this
