Looks OK at first.  Perhaps this script does work from the command
line while it does not from within MRTG when running from cron.
Make sure all programs, scripts, filters and whatever can be found,
the best is to use absolute paths (i.e. /usr/bin/grep, not just grep).

Looking good again.

The first line of your log file should show you the values you
collected with this script.  If they are not showing proper values
then something's wrong when trying to call this script.
