Getting the same message every five minutes is how the threshold works.
The file is deleted when the threshold drops below specified number and
it is OK, so now it runs the program specified by the OK line. Some
people have discussed this previously and have the program that is
called also keep track of the break, and only run once clearing this
when OK is run. MRTG is working correctly, it is now your turn to write
a program that does what you want with the data that is given to you by
