Hi, everyone:

I have MRTG running on a RedHat Linux 7.1 machine, and
based on Tobias Oetiker's UNIX MRTG Installation
Guide.  I manually run

./cfgmaker --global 'WorkDir: /home/httpd/mrtg'  

          --global 'Options[_]: bits,growright' 

          --output /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg    

           public at

/usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/./mrtg /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg


./indexmaker mrtg.cfg > /home/httpd/mrtg/index.html

Then I am fine. You can check

Now I want to automate the process of MRTG, and I
added the following into /etc/crontab based on Tobias
Oetiker's guide:

0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55 * * * * \
/usr/local/mrtg-2/bin/./mrtg /home/mrtg/cfg/mrtg.cfg \
                --logging /home/http/mrtg/mrtg.log
Then there is nothing changed if you refresh

How to make MRTG automate processing? Please help.
Thanks in advance.
