I think the 3rd and 4th value that's passed to MRTG are used for 'Device

Subject: [mrtg] "0" are not in the log file


my data source for getting mem info is a simple bash script, which prints 4
out (value1, value2, 0,0)

when I take a look at my mem log files from mrtg, I get something like that:

1007370697 37937152 95830016
1007370697 37937152 95830016 37937152 95830016
1007370674 38068224 95698944 38068224 95698944
1007370600 28551168 71774208 38068224 95698944

I know that I could get the data from snmp, but I 
want to know why mrtg ignores my "0" output?

output from script:
# ./mem
