The cfg file doesn't change, the output of your program has to be as follows
(taken from the config.html file that is part of the DOCUMENTATION):
if you want to monitor something which does not provide data via snmp you
can use some external program to do the data gathering.
The external command must return 4 lines of output:
current state of the first variable, normally 'incoming bytes count'
current state of the second variable, normally 'outgoing bytes count'
string (in any human readable format), telling the uptime of the target.
string, telling the name of the target.
Depending on the type of data your script returns you might want to use the
'gauge' or 'absolute' arguments for the Options keyword.
Target[ezwf]: `/usr/local/bin/df2mrtg /dev/dsk/c0t2d0s0`
Note the use of the backticks (`), not apostrophes (') around the command.
