I should point out that the threshold logic described by Michael is based on the threshold perl scripts that can be found on my web site.  It is NOT the way MRTG handles thresholds "out-of-the-box" so to speak.

Just wanted to maintain clarity.

Hello Alex

The thresholding script wait over 1 hour before sending an other error message.

It works like that :

When MRTG detect an threshold error, it send an alert to the mailing script. Then the scrit send the message and create an file called $target_value.timeflag (ex : ethernet.timeflag) who contain the hour when the 1st error message was sent. (ex : if the mesage was sent at 5:15, the stored value will be 5)
