I am running MRTG on windows with a cron job calling a batch file using perl.exe,
My cfg file looks like this at the start
------- begin cfg file -------
### Global Config Options
# for UNIX
# WorkDir: /home/http/mrtg
# Directory where to store the graphs (out put)
# or for NT
### Target options are overriding the default options
### Global Defaults
TimeStrFmt[_]: %a %d %b %H:%M %Y
Title[_]: :: Live Statistics at Yorkton-Digital ::
Colours[_]: #228B22, #990033, #006600, #F02010
# Interval: 5
-------- end sample ------
You will see that "Run as daemon: no" is set and "interval: 5" is not activated.
Therefore I am using the cron job. If you don't have a cron utility for windows
available, you can use "Windows scheduler", does the same job; calling the batch
file every 5 minutes.
And my simple batch file looks like this, just correct the path to your mrtg\bin
folder. I am using Active Perl too.
------- begin batch file -------
perl mrtg system.cfg --logging=system.txt
------- end batch file ---------
