I know I have posted this before but here it is again...

The only problem with running MRTG as a service is that you have to stop
that service before any changes to your script(s) will take effect.

This is not so with a program called "MRTG Daemon" that I have created.

You create a one line batch file to execute the perl script (eg "perl.exe
mrtg mrtg.cfg") and the program will run the batch file after a specific
time period.
That way the program is running in the background and not the perl-mrtg
process, which will enable you to change your script(s) without having to
stop the timer.

I have a number of people testing this program (it's only a couple of weeks
old), if anybody would like to be notified when all testing is complete drop
me a mail.

Features are:
*	Very simple and easy to use.
*	Option to totally hide the MSDOS box or have it minimised on the
taskbar so you can view any perl/mrtg/rateup/rrdtool errors.
*	Visible timer, if you minimise the daemon, the timer is displayed on
the taskbar.
*	Enables you to add, change or delete your MRTG scripts without
having to use the CTRL+ALT+DELETE then end the Perl task as before.
*	Set polling intervals from 5 minutes to 60 minutes.
