Yesterday you sent me mail regarding [mrtg] lock file in 2.9.4:

RB> in older versions of mrtg, when run as daemon, it would test for and
RB> leave a lock file.  so i could have a cron job to run the start script
RB> every hour in case the puppy died.
RB> 2.9.4 seems not to lock, so the cron job creates a lot of mrtgs which
RB> just don't seem to get on well with eachother. :-)

it locks but only during its active periode ... but check for the
mrtg.pid file

RB> is the intent that i fall back to non-daemon mode and cron mrtg every
RB> five minutes, or is there some other hack?
