Hi All,

I am currently trying to get an MRTG script written to log interface errors
on a cisco7200.

My interface number (index value) is 5
My mib string for interface errors is and

Target[hurley]: . at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
MaxBytes[hurley]: 12500000
Options[hurley]: growright
Title[hurley]: hurley (if-errors): FastEthernet1/1
PageTop[hurley]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for FastEthernet1/1
   <TR><TD>System:</TD><TD>hurley in </TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Interface:</TD><TD>FastEthernet1/1 (5)</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Max Speed:</TD>
       <TD>100Mbits/s (ethernetCsmacd)</TD></TR>

I'd like my graph to map both errors IN and errors OUT

I have tried a variety of combinations in the target mib string but i get
errors along the lines of

SNMPGET Problem for . . sysUptime
sysName on xxxxx at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
SNMPGET: Failed to reach target:
"mailto:. at xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. I
tried multiple times!

Can anyone point me in the right direction - I have a feeling that I am
missing something fundamental here....
I know with the sample of the config file that i provide above that i do not
reference the index value - so how do i do that???? I've tried putting it on
the end and also adding it infront of the string for IF errors.... : (

Thanks very much in advance
