Traffic (ifInOctets and ifOutOctets) are poll by default.

You also don't need to change the 'Legend' parameters as this is also

For standard traffic the following would be enough...

Target[device]: 24:public at router1
Options[device]: growright, bits
## For MaxBytes divide the bandwidth by 8 (eg 64,000Kb / 8 = 8000KB)
MaxBytes[device]: 8000
Title[device]: Add a title here
PageTop[device]: <H1>Title for the top of the page</H1>
    <TR><TD>System:</TD><TD>Interface atm1</TD></TR>

I read the mail from Sharon as though so wanted to monitor the ip accounting
on an interface.

To create a standard traffic config use 'cfgmaker' or 'cfgmaker.cisco' from
the contrib folder.

ok. You need the index of the interfaces you want to monitor. You can do a
snmpwalk ipaddress community interfaces, then you get everything about the
interfaces in your Cisco.

Here is a sample configuration file to monitor the inIfOctets and the
outIfOctets of an interface. First you should check the correct interface
index of the port to monitor.

Target[ffm1.1]: at router
Options[ffm1.1]: growright, bits, nopercent
MaxBytes[ffm1.1]: 155520000
AbsMax[ffm1.1]: 155520000
Suppress[ffm1.1]: y
Title[ffm1.1]: Interface atm1
YLegend[ffm1.1]: Bits/sec
ShortLegend[ffm1.1]: B/s
Legend1[ffm1.1]: In Bits/sec
Legend2[ffm1.1]: Out Bits/sec
LegendI[ffm1.1]: &nbsp;In Bits/sec:
LegendO[ffm1.1]: &nbsp;Out Bits/sec:
PageTop[ffm1.1]: <H1>Interface atm1
    <TR><TD>System:</TD><TD>Interface atm1</TD></TR>

Where is under the MIB-2 branch of the MIB tree.
10 are the ifInOctets and 24 is the interface index.
16 are the ifOutOctets and 24 is the interface index.

"public" is the community and "router1" the remote router to monitor.
