Here's the config file extract:

Target[as5300-x.lines]: `/export/home/acd/bin/mrtg-as5300 -n as5300-2 -n as5300-10 -n as5300-11 -n as5300-12 -n as5300-13 -n as5300-14 -s communitystring`
MaxBytes[as5300-x.lines]: 120
Options[as5300-x.lines]: gauge
Title[as5300-x.lines]: All AS5300's lines in use total

The script /export/home/acd/bin/mrtg-as5300 produces this type of output when
supplied with these options:


The logfile (after it's been running like this for a few weeks, looks like this:

964733102 702 0
964733102 70 0 70 0
964732802 70 0 70 0
964732800 70 0 70 0
964732500 70 0 70 0
964732200 70 0 70 0
[many more lines looking the same]

That's the long and short of it.
