David,
for this machine here (not the receiver) the interface list looks like this:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>route print
=============================================================
Schnittstellenliste
0x1 ........................... MS TCP Loopback interface
0x2 ...00 11 2f 00 00 c7 ...... Marvell Yukon 88E8001/8003/8010 PCI Gigabit Ethe
rnet Controller - Paketplaner-Miniport

So, I guess, the number right of the 0x ist the interface number, right?

Cheers,
U.
Yes, they are hex numbers, so 0x2 hex (also 2 decimal) is the interface number for your 1Gb/s networking card. On the Windows XP PC I'm using right now, I get:

Interface List
0x1 ........................... MS TCP Loopback interface
0x2 ...00 80 56 00 00 08 ...... VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet8
0x3 ...00 80 56 00 00 01 ...... VMware Virtual Ethernet Adapter for VMnet1
0x10005 ...00 00 00 00 00 e0 ...... Intel(R) 82566DC Gigabit Network Connection

so 10005 (hex) is the network card number, which is 65541 (decimal). I used the Windows calculator to convert. Checking my mrtg.cfg file, I see a line:

Target[Narvik]: 65541:public@....0.1

By the way, I changed the MAC addresses before publication. Checking on the Windows-7 PC Alta we used earlier, which has a DVB World box attached (and this seems to give the results in decimal, not hex).

Interface List
16...00 00 00 00 08 08 ......DVB Net ETAdapter
11...20 cf 30 00 00 49 ......Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller
1...........................Software Loopback Interface 1
12...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Microsoft ISATAP Adapter
13...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface
15...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #2

and we have in the mrtg.cfg file:

Target[Alta_DVB]: 16:public@Alta

Target[Alta]: 11:public@....0.1

You can see I used both versions of the IP address!

Cheers,
David

You can use the loopback address (127.0.0.1) or PCname instead of the
numeric IP address:

Target[Alta-LAN]: 11:public@....0.1

Target[Alta-LAN]: 11:public@Alta

The loopbackaddress doesn't look as elegant, but is most likely to stay
thesame!

The interface/network number (11) may vary ifyou change the configuration
(e.g. add Wi-Fi dongle). Once theconfiguration is set, I tend to reboot,
and run cfgmaker, tosee what the network numbers actually are.

Anyway, not the topic right now, but rather this: Here ist the top of
the DVB-related part of the
config filegenerated by the cfgmaker routine:

you can solve the "131704"

changing the line

and then any of "windbuedel_131074" to

Uhm.... I really have "Eumetcast1_65540" in my cfg
file, unchanged because of some links on my website and on David's
site.
Anyway I have also the internet link monitored with
...
Target[Eumetcast1_USB_Link]: /192.168.2.2:public@Eumetcast1:
...
and it's working correctly.

I have made a quick check with "Eumetcast1_DVB" instead of
"Eumetcast1_65540" and MRTG is working.

I have just a little time this morning because of some family issues,
so just some advise:
- is there any file named
"windbuedel_dvb..." (files name are all in lower case, also if
target name has uppercase) in folder?
- I remember past experiences
when MRTG got me crazy because of simple typos, so get the working version
(backup first...) and modify by changing /all/ "131074" to
"DVB" 

As a reference this is my working configuration (maybe wrapped...) :

Giuseppe,
I un-commented the ethernet-IF part of the cfg file now too, which appears
as windbuedel-3 (cfgmaker-generated).
The error message(s) indivated that I seem to have missed so far to give
rateup correct directions of where to look and where to act.

Here is the reponse from the DOS-Box:

The temporary DVB- .png image looked correct when I cleared the one that
reatup could not remove and renamed the .tmp one.

That's why I suspect a problem in the environment of rateup.

Thanks for your patience!

Hi Could anyone please advise on which defrag program to use . At this time i am running Smart Defrag2 but since this was installed i seem to have an issue with occasional missing segments. Any Help would be apreciated.

Re: write permission for rateup.exe - was: Getting MRTG to work

Ulrich G. Kliegis
 

David, Giuseppe, and other MRTGeroes,
the problem in my setup seems to be the write permission for rateup.exe,
which is unexplainable to me. I never experienced any problems with these
access rights on that machine (XP Pro).

The error messsages sent from MRTG / Rateup.exe indicate, though, that
rateup can't rename any *.png.tmp file to the corresponding ~.png file.
It seems to miss to delete the pevious ~png file first.
It writes new ~.tmp files, though.

When I rename a ~png.tmp file to, say, ~2.png, the content shows a correct
result, like a realistic strength value. So, apart from the rewriting function,
most other things look good so far.

I checked the permission properties. The files themselves are fully writable,
no restrictions

The folder(s), though, show a write-protect-box symbol filled with a pale
green square, not the 'v' check mark. I can clear that, but it reappears
immediately. As said, I have not experienced any other permission
restricitons on that machine.

Finally, MRTG somehow thinks it lives on a Win 2000 machine - that's what
the cfgmaker wrote into the mrtg-cfg header block. No idea why, no idea
what consequences this has upon the permission structure.

Thanks for any help.

Cheers,U.

I have run MSTdefrag for some time now - no trouble, works very effectively.

Ulrich,

My recent installs have been to C:&#92;Tools&#92;MRTG&#92;, where C:&#92;Tools&#92; was given "everyone" "full control" access when it was created. Obviously, the log-files directory might need similar treatment were it created elsewhere. Perhaps copy the log files somewhere else for the moment and re-create the log directory?

I've not looked at the version guess - I don' think it is anything other than descriptive text.

Cheers,
David

David,
thanks, I had tried that already, created a new virginal directory
c:&#92;mrtg_data and set the pointer in the config file there. No avail.
Strange.

I assume you gave everyone, full control of the directory?

The other possibility, Ulrich, is to change the ownership of the directory, perhaps to everyone. But I just checked on my Win-7/64 PC, and the owner is "David", not "everyone". Are you running MRTG as a service or, like me, just from the Startup directory (menu), and from the command-line when testing?

Cheers,
David

Just command line testing so far, no continuous run yet.
Must be a stupid little detail I forgot.

Hello Duncan
I'm using smartdefrag2 on a Windows 7 64bit machine - and don't see missing segments. The prog runs on auto-defrag with a RAM drive excluded, and the defrag timer (for no CPU usage) set to minimum. This way it does a defrag about every three hours.

I used MST as well in the past which worked fine - but the older one wasn't suitable for a modern machine.

Can you see from the log if there is a correlation between the defrag times and the missing segments?

Cheers

James

I have used Smart Defrag and Auslogics Defrag on my Windows 7 64-bit computer without any issues.

I used mstdefrag successfully for a number of years, but I am using a new
( and not to be released ) Tellicast client 2.5.17 and mstdefrag causes
losses on this client as does Kaspersky Internet Security 2011.

Ian.

Alan Banks <alan@...>
 

Like Ian, I use Auslogics Defrag. Used to use MSTDefrag but ran into problems with version number and it would crash.
I schedule defrag once every 24 hrs, on a PC that receives MSG2, MSG1, Metop, Modis, AVHRR plus 2 iterations MSGDM, MSGAnimator, GSS jobs and Microsoft Essentials, Win XP Pro SP3.
No losses.

re defrag

duncan
 

Thanks for the support James..Ian..Alan.Yes i have found that when the program goes into defrag mode then the missing segments start. So as a test today from 2pm today i have stopped the program and all seems well .I also had the dreded red t also when the program was engaged this only happened until the program went into standby then all was well once again .I am one of the few that run on a one pc system so this might be the problem .I have a reasonable machine with an athlon 3000+ processor,,2gb ddr2 ram and a 500mb graphics card running windows xp with 2 250gb h drives. i recieve metop/msg/and avhrr only so i have not had much trouble until now.....Thanks Duncan
