[mrtg] Setting Alerts by configuring Threshold Checking

Hi All,

Has anyone configured MRTG so that it gives out an alert when the monitored
value deviates beyond the defined threshold limits? According to the
"reference" document, this is configured by setting the option ThresProgI
for incoming values and ThresProgO for outgoing values.

I tried configuring the ThresholdI[_] option so that the Threshold value is
applicable for all the devices listed in the cfg file, but when I run MRTG,
it gives the following error 

ERROR: CFG Error in "threshprogi[]", line 75: Threshold program ls cannot be

The commands I specify within the option work well at the command line. In
above case I gave "ls" as the command to be executed. Any ideas?!!
