I don't know how to use this option.  I try to add a line in the
beginning of my mrtg.cfg file :


But when I call the cgi from IE6 a message appears in the navigator:

"ERROR: CFG Error in "userrdtool[_]", line 46: UseRRDtool[] is not valid
any more. Check the new xyz*bla[] syntax for passing parameters to tool
xyz who reads the mrtg.cfg"

Do you mean I should create a cgi per config file (one config file per
router). It should be very long and not so flexible. Because, I already
have  40 routers to manage. So I should create 40 cgi and realize one
HTML page with the links to the corresponding cgi. I prefer to use
Option1, can you help me, please ?

what does mean "manglemant" ? I don't understand this word. Can you
explain me more, please ?

Yes, I heard about it, but I didn't investigate so much my time to see
what it does. A priori, it is used to accelerate cgi, but it is maybe
not advise to use it with 14all-1.1cgi, if I remember well what I have
read in the documentation
