Prerequisites
In order to utilize the IPSentry Graphing Tool, you must have detail statistics logging enabled within IPSentry.

Launch IPSentry
Select Action then System Options
Click on the Statistics Output tab.
Make sure that "Enable Detailed Graphing Statistics Logging" is enabled.
* If this option was not enabled, you will need to run a few monitoring cycles in IPSentry in order to accumulate some data - otherwise, you will end up with blank graphs.
