On one server tonight, my munin graphs (produced by the whm munin plugin) now have graph legends which have a darker gray and slightly larger font than before.

It's easier to read and I like it!

I don't see this in the change log, and I'm not sure exactly when this changed, but the daily and weekly graphs have the larger and darker easier-to-read legend fonts but not the monthly or yearly graphs yet. I'm curious if there is a setting to change my other servers to this new legend. They all say graphed by Munin 2.0.30. But the one server now has graphs with legends which are much easier to read for me and a nice improvement.

I figured it out. On the one server when upcp ran, yum update updated a cloudlinux alt-php version that was only installed on the one server. That alt-php version installed rrdtool as a dependency for the first time ever (munin I believe uses cpanel-rrdtool instead, so rrdtool was not installed previously I don't think.) When the rrdtool rpm installed, it installed two other dependencies:
dejavu-lgc-sans-mono-fonts
and
dejavu-sans-mono-fonts

(before only dejavu-fonts-common was installed.)

Installing dejavu-lgc-sans-mono-fonts and dejavu-sans-mono-fonts now with yum install on my other servers made the legends on my other munin graphs a darker gray and a larger font too. I like it as it's much more readable for me.

(Some might not like it as the munin graphs with the previous very light gray small font looked stylish, but I like it as it's much more readable for me now.)
