I changed the values about Interval 5mins to the MRTG_lib.pm file .

# default interval is 5 minutes

$$cfg{interval} = 5 unless defined $$cfg{interval};

unless ($$cfg{logformat} eq 'rrdtool') {

# interval has to be 5 minutes at least without userrdtool

if ($$cfg{interval} < 5) {

die "ERROR: CFG Error in \"Interval\": should be at least 5 Minutes";

I have tested with 2 mins and with a cfg file contains 2 interfaces .Of
course you can always use the Inetrval : xx mins in exery cfg (Because with
this change the default is 2mins )
It seems to work .(Its working about one day ) .
Would i have any further problems with this change ?



PS: I say again that i am testing it with this change .... i dont know if i
have any further problems .....
