Hi everyone,

I'm looking to find some information on the forking option and exactly how
it works. What I've been able to find is Tobi's information in changelogs
suggesting a fork for every router if you have a large config.

-Can anyone explain exactly how the forking option effects MRTG from start
to finish, especially when running MRTG in daemon mode with hundreds of
included configs?

-If you specify the forking option with 40, is 40 the minimum or maximum
forks...or does it always start 40 no matter what?

-How many targets go into each fork?

-Any additional information about forking would be much appreciated. I want
to fully understand forking so I can confidently leverage that power for
very large configs.

Thanks for any help,
