Thanks to Don Buchholz, Neil Calvert and Daniel R . Kilbourne for their

Don's wrapper solves the problem. I was already using full paths for the
cron job. My LD_LIBRARY_PATH is correctly exported in </etc/profile> and
therefore, MRTG was working correctly from the command line.

Why didn't it work from the cron job? Any ideas?

Thanks, Curro.

You need to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  I use a wrapper named
/usr/local/mrtg/run_mrtg.  It sets the path, and then runs:



cd /usr/local/mrtg
./mrtg mrtg.conf

The crontab entry is simply:

0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * *
