This is likely a silly question, but I'm just not finding it digging around...

where is the munin font face and size stored?

I ask because I enabled munin on a new server and the font and size don't match the graphs generated by an old whm/cpanel server, even though both say they are generated by munin version 1.2.4

For some reason on the freshly installed (today) whm/cpanel server with the freshly installed munin plugin are too long and are going off the graphs slightly (cut off)

Thanks Infopro -- maybe I'll try uninstalling the munin plugin from the older whm server and then re-adding it to see if it will match the new server (it's weird that the graphs look different even though the munin version numbers are the same in the generated output) -- on the other hand I hesitate to do this because I like the old server's munin graphs better (attached for comparison to new server's munin graph in the post above. The "old" style is somewhat easier for me to read and with the more condensed font resists line wrapping better...)

OK, I just uninstalled the munin plugin from the cpanel plugins screen on the older server and then installed it again through whm and that font is still different than the brand new fresh server. Both are RHEL5.

Also I find it interesting that when I went to the munin site and clicked live examples, clicked http://munin.ping.uio.no/ping.uio.no/knoll.ping.uio.no.html#Nfs for example the font there is different than either of my whm-cpanel plugin installed munin installs, so I'm not seeing three different fonts in play. Somewhere the font must be set, but I can't figure out where for the life of me...

Same issue on this side of things.. been driving me nuts. The quality of the graphs isn't the same either.. by that I mean the resolution of the datapoints makes the lines look "chunky"

No, still have this problem on all new installs. I think it's related to a newer rrd version and an older munin version.

#336618 - munin: blurry graphs after rrdtool upgrade - Debian Bug report logs mentions:
Munin 1.2.5 fixes the font issue related to rrd 1.2. There is a kludge in the 1.3 series to address some further issues, all in r1180 upstream.
There seems to be a 1.2.6 release on the munin site as well, though the WHM version is still at 1.2.4.
