Re: Getting MRTG to work

David, it needn't be you to reply, maybe some of the other MRTG-ops can direct me too.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I created a first basic configuration file today, and - since I don't intend to monitor the ethernet
traffic of that PC right now, commented-out all line that deal with the ethernet interface -
realizing that an IP address deliberately given by the DHCP-server may cause additional efforts
- or will the mrtg mechanism look up the address each time the PC is restarted?
Anyway, not the topic right now, but rather this: Here ist the top of the DVB-related part of the
config file generated by the cfgmaker routine:
### Interface 131074 >> Descr: 'TechniSat-DVB-PC-TV-Star-PCI' | Name: '' | Ip:
'192.168.238.238' | Eth: '00-d0-d7-0f-ee-a5' ###
Title[windbuedel_131074]: Traffic Analysis for 131074 -- WINDBUEDEL
PageTop[windbuedel_131074]: <h1>Traffic Analysis for 131074 -- WINDBUEDEL</h1> ...
windbuedel is the PC-name. I saw in your examples, David, that you use a nomenclature like
Target[windbuedel_dvb]. Is this preferable (except for readability)? And if so, where is the place
to tell mrtg that 131074 = dvb?
Sorry for my probably rather trivial questions, this is a new field for me. So, thanks in advance
for all helpful advice!
