I have configured snmp on my NT server so I can monitor it from a Linux box.
I have tested the info I want to probe using get if, and running
'snmpget public
gives me enterprises.311. = 560
which is exactly what I want, however, MRTG gives empty graphs for this OID.
Do I need a leading . in the OID, and does it have to end with an instance,
i.e 0???  Can I expect MRTG to get exactly the same values back that snmpget
