Configuring graphs in Mikrotik

The graphs are an excellent tool for monitoring the device’s processor load, disk and RAM, voltage and temperature, and the amount of traffic transmitted through network interfaces.
Via Winbox or the web-based interface, the settings can be found in the “Tools” -> “Graphing” menu.
