To be on the safe side: Make a copy your mrtg config file, insert the
line  "Logformat: rrdtool" into the copy and start another mrtg job on
this config file. mrtg will convert the log files to rrd files for you.
There should be no need to change the paths as with logformat rrdtool
mrtg shouldn't touch any of the files of the other mrtg job.
