[mrtg] mrtg restart problems

I am running redhat linux.  I have been using mrtg and snmpd to monitor
several cisco routers for years.  Some time mrtg died, now I can not restart
it.  I am running it as a daemon.

I have tried stopping snmpd, which appears to happen normally.  It also
restarts normally and can be seen in ps -ax.


Stopping mrtg results in a failure and mrtg.pid and /var/lock/subsys/mrtg


I remove both and attempt to start mrtg and it appears to start normally but
immediately is dead again.


Mrtg status results in:

mrtg dead but subsys locked


I don't get what has happened that I can't restart the darn thing.


Please help.
