Hello Group,
	I have written this question before in the group. I have a WinNT 4.0
server. I want to monitor drive usage in MB and total drive size. I have
installed snmp4 on the WinNT server. There is no MIB / OID for total drive
size. I have had several responses from the group concerning this issue and
I thank everyone for the insight but I am still unable to resolve this. I
then had an idea. Since I can't draw a line within the mrtg.cfg file where
the total drive size is, how about using the TheshMax option?. At least it
would paint a red line where the MAX value is, which I use as the total
drive size. First problem is that the scale of the graph does not show the
TheshMax line. So I set the .cfg file to Unscaled. Now the red line appears
but it no longer graphs the current drive information. I search thought the
list and found a thread where it was stated that you would have to use a
version of MRTG above .27 since there was a problem with sizes above 2GB in
older versions. My MRTG server is using version .25 so I have another server
that is using ver .29 and I set the .cfg file to run for there. I still get
the same issue. As long as Unscaled is set, it will not graph any data. Does
anyone have any ideas?
