Hi all

I am calling a Perl script as one of the sources to get the amount of

graph this data correctly? I haven't found anything in the documentation
that sounded like it would help me with this dilemma.

I am currently running MRTG 2.9.17.
The script is being called like `/etc/mrtg/disk-space.pl md1` and it
currently returns the following values:
