[mrtg] Re: Running cfgmaker periodically

I set up cfgmaker to be run out of cron every morning at 6:00 am, after
the maintenance windows are complete, so that it can check for new/deleted
or changed interfaces.   I track the interfaces now by IP address, and
haven't had any problems.   If you need to do this to keep up with your
admins changes, then you need to do it.

Caveat's?   Track by IP address, else you will find yourself starting over
everytime somebody resets an interface, or adds hardware or anything.

Cheers, and Merry Xmas.  I gotta go before I'm single again. :)
Hit me offline if you're interested in teh details of how I set it up.
