MRTG cannot update more often than once every five minutes, you'll need
RDDTool to monitor more often.  RDDTool is available at

Hi Deny,

Thanks for your attention.
Let me describe waht is happening.

I have already included the Interval 1 in the mrtg.cfg
I also changed the refresh period of the page (.hmtl) in the mrtg file.
But a strange thing occurs. 
The graph refresh every minute in the first three minutes (both the graph
itself and the current values shown).
Then, although the page still refreshing every minute, the graph and their
values refreshes every five minutes.

Is there a bug ? or am I missing something ?

Again, thanks a lot for your attention.

Hello eduard

If you want that MRTG run as a daemon beginning data collection every 1
minutes, then you can set the Interval value en 1

Other solution in Unix is by adding the following line in cron
*/1 * * * * /<mrtg-bin>/mrtg <path to mrtg-cfg>/mrtg.cfg

let me know how it worked. .
