[mrtg] Question about statistics

Hello - 

I'm grabbing TinyDNS statistics by using the following script. 




GOOD="`awk '{ print $3 }' $TINYDNSLOG | grep '+' | wc -l`"
BAD="`awk '{ print $3 }' $TINYDNSLOG | grep '-' | wc -l`" 

echo $GOOD
echo $BAD
echo "TinyDNS Statistics"
echo ununsed 

This returns values such as 

TinyDNS Statistics

However, as many of you know, TinyDNS writes logfiles such as @439820498203 
as they are rotated. My script unfortunately checks for how many good ("+") 
and how many bad ("-") lookup attempts there have been. 

How would I best graph this in MRTG? After all, if the file gets 
overwritten, how would it know that there were x number of hits prior to the 
logfile being rotated, etc.. 

Or if there 's a better way to graph TinyDNS queries, I'd love to hear it. 




I'm Bill - what are you?
