Has anyone had success in monitorying Cisco Catalyst 35XX switches?

I have MRTG installed on a PC running Debian Linux. The config appears to 
have been successful and the PC is communicating with the switches every 5 
minutes. The communication works well enough to recognize all the ports, 
their names, and mac addresses. I have an apache web server and am able to 
view the graphs of all of the ports for the three switches I want to 

However, there is no data being collected. The log file for each port 
contains all zeros for data.

I have also been evaluating WhatsUp Gold and an able to see the data by 
selecting the counters I wish to monitor, so I know that there is data on 
the switches to monitor. I am new to the mailing list so if more 
information is needed to determine the answer to my problem let me know.

I searched the archives a found a similar line early last year and checked 
with the individual who had the problem. He was not able to solve it and 
is using another program to monitor the switches.
