I'm running MRTG on Solaris, and I'm trying to monitor the bandwidth useage on a PIX 515e.

On the PIX, I've got the following configuration entries:

nameif ethernet0 outside security0
nameif ethernet1 inside security100
name Excalibur
snmp-server host inside Excalibur poll
snmp-server community public
snmp-server enable traps

In mrtg, I have the following config:

PageTop[pix]: <H1>Internet</H1>
Target[pix]: #outside:public at pix1
MaxBytes[pix]: 1250000
Title[pix]: Cisco PIX

[outside is the name of the inteface to be monitored, the SNMP packets come in on the inside interface]

However, whenever I run mrtg, the mrtg process maxes out the CPU, and nothing appears in the logs.

Thoughts ?
