Hi folks!
I'm new to mrtg so forgive me if I ask a simple question. (I have checked
the mailing list archives and FAQs)


I'm trying to graph Solaris Servers performance using  SNMP.  I have managed
to create a simple network trafiic monitor using CFGmaker but for some
reason the Uptime is being reported as 3 days, not the 141 it should be... I
think this relates to when I installed net-snmp ins tead of Suns SNMP MIB.
Looking into the OID's etc I can see two different ones.  hrSystemUptime
which returns the correct system uptime and sysUptimeInstance which is
returning the 3 days.


How do I get mrtg to use the hrSystemUptime.0 variable instead of


I notice there is not much stuff on using MRTG/SNMP to monitor Sun
servers... should I be using the other cfg's that use unix commands via ssh
and perl scripts? Just wondered!
